Pscan finds Over-represented Transcription Factor Binding Site Motifs in
Sequences from Co-Regulated or Co-Expressed Genes.
Pscan is a software tool that scans a set of sequences (e.g. promoters)
from co-regulated or co-expressed genes with motifs describing the
binding specificity of known transcription factors and assesses which
motifs are significantly over- or under-represented, providing thus
hints on which transcription factors could be common regulators of the
genes studied, together with the location of their candidate binding
sites in the sequences. Pscan does not resort to comparisons with
orthologous sequences and experimental results show that it compares
favorably to other tools for the same task in terms of false positive
predictions and computation time. The website is free and open to all
users and there is no login requirement.

pscan-tfbs (1.2.2-2) unstable; urgency=medium
* Team upload.
* Remove unused template files
* provide /usr/bin/pscan-tfbs to avoid file name conflict with pscan
package and keep the original upstream name in
Closes: #901039
* Standards-Version: 4.1.4

pscan-tfbs (1.2.2-1) unstable; urgency=low
[ Steffen Moeller ]
* Initial release (Closes: #673182)
* Added man page
* Homepage claims that version 1.4 exists but I can not find it

Presumably this refers to the web site more than to the
C code that seems untouched since ever.
