If you are using this motif collection in your research please cite [Kulakovskiy, I.V. and Makeev, V.J. (2009) Discovery of DNA motifs recognized by transcription factors through integration of different experimental sources. Biophysics, 54(6), 667-674]

This site contains Drosophila transcription factor motifs built from different available experimental sources. For footprinting-only motifs please check our DMMPMM project. Also do not forget to check bottom of the page for the 'downloads' section. This is static page, so if you want to see the latest version do not be afraid of hitting F5 (refresh) in your browser.

Here you can access our fast motif digger ChIPMunk used in this research.

Here you can browse raw motif, sequence and comparison data.

Motifs and comparison data

Here you can find logos and comparison data for motifs built from different experimental data sources.

Here you can find comparison data on independent ChIP-chip peaks set.

Here you can find specific details about integrated motif construction procedure including description of the table columns.
