Abstract

In transcription factor binding site discovery, the true width of the motif to be discovered is generally not known a priori. The ability to compute the most likely width of a motif is therefore a highly desirable property for motif discovery algorithms. However, this is a challenging computational problem as a result of changing model dimensionality at changing motif widths. The complexity of the problem is increased as the discovered model at the true motif width need not be the most statistically significant in a set of candidate motif models. Further, the core motif discovery algorithm used cannot guarantee to return the best possible result at each candidate width.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 2. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 29 January 2014.
All research outputs
#13,335,430
of 21,347,367 outputs
Outputs from Algorithms for Molecular Biology
#109
of 259 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#95,556
of 174,405 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Algorithms for Molecular Biology
#1
of 1 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 21,347,367 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 35th percentile – i.e., 35% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 259 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 3.0. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 55% of its peers.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 174,405 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one is in the 42nd percentile – i.e., 42% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
We're also able to compare this research output to 1 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one has scored higher than all of them
