Connected to the TRANSFAC database on transcription factors and their binding sites is now a pattern 
search engine (PatSearch) written by Holger Karas. Using this tool, you may use all sequence 
elements of the database to scan your sequence for potential TF binding sites. You have to choose 
between selected sequence libraries (vertebrates, insects, plants, fungi, consensi). The program 
output contains the position of the matches and an alignment of the matching sequences.
