Function

Extract data from JASPAR

Description

JASPAR is a collection of transcription factor DNA-binding preferences, modelled as matrices. These can be converted into Position Weight Matrices (PWMs or PSSMs), used for scanning genomic sequences.

JASPAR is the only database with this scope where the data can be used with no restrictions (open-source).

This program copies the 3 JASPAR matrix sets into the EMBOSS data directories, performing any necessary conversions.

The home page of JASPAR is: http://jaspar.genereg.net/

The EMBOSS program jaspscan will not work unless this program is run.

Running this program may be the job of your system manager.

Input file format

The input files are the uncompressed and extracted JASPAR_CORE.tgz, JASPAR_FAM.tgz and JASPAR_PHYLOFACTS.tgz files provided in the JASPAR MatrixDir download directory of the JASPAR homepage (http://jaspar.genereg.net).

The files will usually be extracted in the same directory thereby creating a directory containing subdirectories JASPAR_CORE, JASPAR_FAM and JASPAR_PHYLOFACTS. Given a directory specification, jasparextract will search for these subdirectories and process the files in any that exist. jasparextract will warn the user if any of the three subdirectories do not exist.

Output file format

The output file format is currently the same as the JASPAR distribution format.

Output files for usage example

Directory: JASPAR_CORE

This directory contains output files, for example MA0070.pfm MA0071.pfm MA0072.pfm MA0073.pfm MA0074.pfm MA0075.pfm MA0076.pfm MA0077.pfm MA0078.pfm MA0079.pfm and matrix_list.txt.
