The block diagram shows the motif matches comprising a motif cluster detected by MCAST.
A selected portion of the input sequence with the matching motifs displayed above it.
For each matching motif the strand of the match (+/-), the consensus sequence of the motif, the p-value of the individual motif match (see also help button for "Cluster Score") and the sequence logo of the motif is shown.
You can select the portion of the sequence to be displayed by sliding the two buttons below the sequence block diagram so that the portion you want to see is between the two needles attached to the buttons. By default the two buttons move together, but you can drag one individually by holding shift before you start the drag.
Change the portion of annotated sequence by dragging the buttons; hold shift to drag them individually.
