motifmatchr: motifmatchr: Fast Motif Matching in R

Description Details Author(s)


The motifmatchr package is designed for analyzing many sequences and many motifs to find which sequences contain which motifs.


motifmatchr uses the MOODS C++ library (developedby Pasi Rastas, Janne Korhonen, and Petri Martinmaki) internally for motif matching.

The primary method of motifmatchr is matchMotifs, which takes in motif PWMs/PFMs and genomic ranges or sequences and returns either which ranges/sequences match which motifs or the positions of the matches.

Compared with alternative motif matching functions available in Bioconductor (e.g. matchPWM in Biostrings or searchSeq in TFBSTools), motifmatchr is designed specifically for the use case of determining whether many different sequences/ranges contain many different motifs.
