	We have recently cloned a gene and its promoter.  Given today's
computer technologies, does anyone know a way to search the promoter 
sequence for all potential consensus sequences it may contain using a 
database of characterized transcription factors and the sites they bind.  
It would be necessary to allow for a few mismatches as well.  Any suggestions 
would be appreciated.  Please include enough detail for me to figure out 
exactly what you're recommending.  Please respond by e-mail if at all possible.
	Thank you in advance.
