Wimtrap: Integrative tools to predict the location of trancription factor binding sites, with advanced supports for Arabidopsis thaliana and Solanum lycopersicum

Purposes of the package

Wimtrap is an R package for the prediction of Transcription Factors Binding Sites (TFBS) and corresponding genes targets. It is particularly convenient to preselect candidates targets of TFs of the plant-model Arabidopsis thaliana and Solanum lycopersicum in specific contexts (organs, growth stages, treatments), through the implementation of a ready-to-use model that improves the accuracy of the predictions of TFs in comparison with the popular method that consists to only apply a pattern-matching analysis. The approach, that takes into account epigentic data, can be generalized to any organism.
