An overall summary of the CompMoby software data analysis and algorithm design. Reference refers to upstream or 3' UTR sequences from the same species of the set of co-regulated genes. Orthologous refers to sequences from genes orthologous to the reference species. Aligned blocks are the upstream or 3' UTR conserved sequences derived from a genome-wide pair-wise alignment (obtainable from the UCSC genome browser) between the species used in the reference and orthologous sequences.
