Motivation: Motif Tool Manager is a web-based framework for comparing and combining different approaches to discover novel DNA motifs. It comes with a set of five well-known approaches to motif discovery. It provides an easy mechanism for adding new motif finding tools to the framework through a web-interface and a minimal setup of the tools on the server. Users can execute the tools through the web-based framework and compare results from such executions. The framework provides a basic mechanism for identifying the most similar motif candidates found by a majority of themotif finding tools.
