Tiffin is a database of predicted regulatory motifs and predicted functional sites ("motif instances") on genome sequences. Over-represented motifs are discovered from large stretches of genomic sequence using the NestedMICA algorithm, then validated on the basis of correlations with sequence conservation and gene expression patterns. Having obtained this motif set, it is used to scan likely regulatory regions of the genome to give a set of predicted motif instances. Tiffin is developed in the Tim Hubbard's Vertebrate Genome Analysis research group at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute.
