ELPH is a general-purpose Gibbs sampler for finding motifs in a
set of DNA or protein sequences. The program takes as input a set
containing anywhere from a few dozen to thousands of sequences,
and searches through them for the most common motif, assuming that
each sequence contains one copy of the motif. We have used ELPH
to find patterns such as ribosome binding sites (RBSs) and exon
splicing enhancers (ESEs). See below for instructions on downloading
the complete system, including source code.
ELPH is released as source code and was tested on Linux RedHat 6.x+, Sun Solaris, and Alpha OSF1, but should work on any Unix system.
This software is OSI
Certified Open Source Software .
