Aligned SoxS binding sites, their individual information, sequence logo, and footprint data: Aligned sequences for 16 SoxS binding sites with their
sequence logo and below thatthe footprinted regions.

The sequences used to create this figure are defined by a set of Delila instructions. When Delila is run, the resulting small database is the book. The aligned listing is made by the Alist program.

Individual information scan of SoxS model over sequences
used to create the model displayed as sequence walkers.
Walkers over blue boxes were predicted from the individual information weight matrix created from the aligned listing. Note that the RibA prediction was confirmed by footprinting.

The colors of the lister wave are discussed on another page.
