gapped protein motifs from unaligned sequences

GLAM2 is a software package for finding motifs in sequences, typically amino-acid or nucleotide sequences. A motif is a re-occurring sequence pattern: typical examples are the TATA box and the CAAX prenylation motif. The main innovation of GLAM2 is that it allows insertions and deletions in motifs.

The package includes these programs:

 glam2:       discovering motifs shared by a set of sequences;
 glam2scan:   finding matches, in a sequence database, to a motif discovered
              by glam2;
 glam2format: converting glam2 motifs to  standard alignment formats;
 glam2mask:   masking glam2 motifs out of sequences, so that weaker motifs
              can be found;
 glam2-purge: removing highly similar members of a set of sequences.

In this package, the fast Fourier algorithm (FFT) was enabled for glam2.
