In this paper, we propose an enhanced HMM for the recognition of sigma70 promoters in E. coli. HMMs for -10 and -35 boxes have been proposed to model the positional dependency of motifs which is lost in methods based on weight matrices. We also propose to use a set of spacer states sharing the observation densities to achieve the desired spacer duration probability functions. We have conducted two sets of experiments on recognizing promoters and locating DNA binding sites and the proposed method has achieved very promising results in comparison with earlier neural network approaches.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
