       dba — characterising shared regulatory regions of genomic DNA


       dba [options ... ]  { seq1 seq2 }


       dba  -  standing  for  Dna  Block  Aligner,  was  developped  by Niclas
       Jareborg, Richard Durbin and  Ewan  Birney  for  characterising  shared
       regulatory  regions  of  genomic  DNA,  either  in  upstream regions or
       introns of genes

       The idea was that in these regions  there  would  a  series  of  shared
       motifs,  perhaps  with  one  or two insertions or deletions but between
       motifs there would be any length of sequence.

       The subsquent model was a 3 state model which was log-odd’d ratio to  a
       null  model of their being no examples of a motif in the two sequences.
