Since Unknown seems to have disappeared since asking this question, I'm going to accept Gjain's answer below so the question can be considered answered.

You need to have a solid understanding of statistics to understand these algorithms. Do you have it?

Hi,

These links should help you understand motif discovery and get examples of the algorithms.

  1. This link on Nature explain: how does DNA sequence motif discovery work?
  2. Paper on BMC bioinformatics: survey of DNA motif finding algorithms
  3. This paper discusses some limitations and potentials of motif discovery algorithms (2005)

I hope this helps.

Also worth checking out Biology Meets Programming: Bioinformatics for Beginners https://www.coursera.org/learn/bioinformatics which can help with learning the basics of the algorithms underpinning motif discovery.
