ChIPMunk: fast and efficient motif discovery tool

ChIPMunk is fast heuristic motif discovery tool for analysis of high-throughput sequencing data.

ChIPMunk utilizes both classic mononucleotide and advanced dinucleotide position weight matrices (diChIPMunk) to process your ChIP-Seq, HT-SELEX, DNase footprints & similar data. Motif discovery for RNA-binding proteins (single-stranded search) is also supported.

ChIPMunk identifies the strong motif with the maximum Kullback Discrete Information Content in a given set of nucletide sequences. ChIPMunk uses extended multifasta as the input format.
