Abstract

The identification of sequence (amino acids or nucleotides) motifs in a particular order in biological sequences has proved to be of interest. This paper describes a computing server, SSMBS, which can locate anddisplay the occurrences of user-defined biologically important sequence motifs (a maximum of five) present in a specific order in protein and nucleotide sequences. While the server can efficiently locate motifs specified using regular expressions, it can also find occurrences of long and complex motifs. The computation is carried out by an algorithm developed using the concepts of quantifiers in regular expressions. The web server is available to users around the clock at http://dicsoft1.physics.iisc.ernet.in/ssmbs/.
