Microfootprinter is a tool for locating conserved domains in prokaryotic genomes. Starting form a specific species and gene, the program locates homologs in phylogenetically related genomes and isolates upstream sequences. The sequences are then searched for shared motifs, which typically reflect DNA binding domains.
