MotifGen: Consensus motif generator tool

This tool generates a consensus sequence using stacked sequences of the same length.
Use the example below to generate an consensus for Akt phosphorylation motif.
If a sequence is shorter than other sequences in a given stack, use "x" to represent any amino acid.
The output of MotifGen can be used in our BASALT tool.
x = any amino acid
1 = Hydrophobic - aliphatic: A/I/L/V
2 = Hydrophobic - aromatic: F/W/Y
3 = Neutral - polar side chains: M/N/C/S/Q/T
4 = Acidic: D/E
5 = Basic: R/H/K
6 = Unique: G/P
