Arabidopsis Motif Scanner (AMS) is a Windows application that runs on local computers. It was developed to build gene networks by identifying the positions of cis-regulatory elements in the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana and by providing an easy interface to assess and evaluate gene relationships. Its major innovative feature is to combine the cis-regulatory element positions, NGS and DNA Chip Arrays expression data, Arabidopsis annotations and gene interactions for the identification of gene networks regulated by transcription factors. In studies focused on transcription factors function, the software uses the expression data and binding site motifs in the regulative gene regions to predict direct target genes. Additionally, AMS utilizes DNA-protein and proteinprotein interaction data to facilitate the identification of the metabolic pathways regulated by the transcription factor of interest.
