15/08/2012: Motif Scoring Example

We have provided an updated version of the APPLES modules which perform motif scoring. You can install these inside the VM using the following commands:

wget && sh

This patch gets the file and installs a new version of empirical_scoringREV830 inside the VM.

After installing the patch, you may examine the script ~/VM/motifs/ Running this script will reproduce motif scoring and overrepresentation results using some freely available motifs on the conserved non-coding sequences (CNS) in the promoter of Arabidopsis gene AT1G01030. The results of the script are written to ~/VM/motifs/real_binomial.

NOTE: Running this script for the first time will take a long time (we left it running for around 10 hours) since it needs to compute profiles for all motifs and store them in the cache database. Running the script a second time for a different set of CNS will be much faster.
