Abstract: CMDWave (Conserved Motif Detection using WAVElets) is a web server
that predicts conserved motifs in protein sequences. A set of query protein
sequences are first aligned using ClustalW to obtain equal sized sequences.
CMDWave then converts the sequences into a numerical representation using
electron-ion interaction potential (EIIP). This is followed by a wavelet
decomposition and reconstruction. A new similarity metric along with
thresholding is then used to identify conserved motifs across all the query
sequences. Users need not specify the number of motifs to be identified. For
larger groups of sequences, results can be emailed to the users.
