TOMTOM logo
Version 4.4.0

Use this form to use TOMTOM to compare your DNA motif against a database of known motifs (e.g., JASPAR or Transfac).
TOMTOM will rank the motifs in the target database by the q-value of the similarity score. TOMTOM outputs the q-value of each match, and an alignment of LOGOs representing your query and the target motif it matches. You can click on the target motif ID in your results to get more information. (A Transfac license is required for viewing Transfac details.)
