TargetFinder is a new tool to facilitate database searches for candidate
target genes of 
transcription factors. The use of this program allows to search a database
of annotated 
sequences for binding sites located in context with other important
transcription regulatory 
signals and regions, like the TATA element, the transcription start site,
the promoter 
and so on, thereby greatly reducing the background usually associated with
this kind of 
searches.
