Wistar Institute Launches Promoter Database Web Tool to Aid Researchers | GenomeWeb

In an effort to aid scientists in locating gene promoters, a team from the Wistar Institute has released an online tool — the Mammalian Promoter Database, or MPromDb — that integrates a range of publicly available human and mouse genomic data. This new Web interface allows researchers to pinpoint known promoters, and predicts which are most likely to be located by mining databases like Gene Expression Omnibus and the ENCyclopedia of DNA Elements, as well as Wistar's own public genomics data.
