TFM-Pvalue



Efficient and accurate P-value computation for Position Weight Matrices

TFM-Pvalue solves the P-value calculation problem for Position Weight Matrices and Position Specific Scoring Matrices. It can compute the P-value corresponding to a given score threshold, or conversely find the score given the desired P-value.

Matrices used have the same form as those available in the Transfac or Jaspar databases for transcription factors binding sites, for example.
