This tool locates sites (short DNA sequences) within the human, mouse, rat, fruitfly and the nematode (C. elegans) genomes. It works by fetching user supplied longer sequences containing the sites from GenBank, then aligning each sequence to the appropriate genome using the BLAT webserver at UC Santa Cruz.
