Full text description
FPS (Functional Position Set) is the specific format used by the Signal Search Analysis server at SIB (SSA). SSA programs typically do not use sequences as input but lists of computer-readable pointers to sequence positions in a database. Such a list of pointers is called a functional position set, or FPS. Each pointer contains a sequence id, a position, and two flags, one indicating the strand (+ or -), the other one the topology (1=linear, 0=circular). The Eukaryotic Promoter Database (EPD) is an example of a functional position set.
