The Gibbs Motif Sampler (Gibbs) is a software package for discovering conserved elements in biopolymer sequences. This unit describes the basic operation of the Web-based interface to Gibbs, along with advanced examples of its use, and the Web interface to dscan, a sequence database search program.
