Seq2Logo 2.0 server

Seq2Logo is a web-based sequence logo generation method for construction and visualization of amino acid binding motifs and sequence profiles including sequence weighting, pseudo counts and two-sided representation of amino acid enrichment and depletion.

Note that Seq2Logo as default includes a pseudo count correction for lowcounts. This means that the amino acid frequencies displayed in the sequence logos are corrected for low number of observations using a Blosum amino acid similarity matrix. To turn this feature off, the Weight on prior must be set to zero.

This program uses a 20x20-matrix with Blosum62 substitution frequencies to calculate pseudo counts.
It also uses the background frequencies relating to the Blosum62 matrix.
If you prefer a different version, you can use your own by uploading them here. *PLEASE USE THE SAME FORMATS!

Amino Acids Colors:
Choose a coloring scheme, or assign the amino acid color manually.
Black is default if the amino acid is unassigned.
