Random sites generator.

Motifs are described as position-specific scoring matrix (PSSM), where each column represents a position within the motif, and each ro a residue (A, C, G or T). The cells contain relative or absolute frequencies depending on the selected options.

The sites are generated by selecting for each column, one row at random proportionally to the column values.
