COMPETE: Competitive Occupancy: Multi-factor Profile Evaluation of a Thermodynamic Ensemble

COMPETE is a software package for calculating the probability of DNA occupancy by a collection of DNA binding factors, including transcription factors, nucleosomes, and the origin recognition complex. Its goal is to be high performance, flexible, and extensible. COMPETE is described in "An Ensemble Model of Competitive Multi-factor Binding of the Genome." Genome Research 19:2101-2112.

COMPETE was developed by Todd Wasson under the direction of Alex Hartemink in the Program in Computational Biology and Bioinformatics and Department of Computer Science at Duke University.

The current version of COMPETE is 0.9.0.
