Import, Modify, and Export Motifs with R

Bioconductor version: Development (3.9)

Allows for importing most common motif types into R for use by functions provided by other Bioconductor motif-related packages. Motifs can be exported into most major motif formats from various classes as defined by other Bioconductor packages. A suite of motif and sequence manipulation and analysis functions are included, including enrichment, comparison, P-value calculation, shuffling, trimming, higher-order motifs, and others.
