BiasAway - An open-access tool for generating multiple different sequence backgrounds of comparable nucleotide composition relative to a set of input sequences
CAGEd-oPOSSUM - Motif enrichment analysis from CAGE-derived TSSs.
ConSite - Transcription factor binding site detection using phylogenetic footprinting. Note that this is an older tool which is hosted remotely. You may also be interested in our ORCAtk tool which is maintained locally and performs similar functionality.
