Promoter Analysis

The analysis of transcription factor binding sites gives further insight into the regulatory pathways stimulated by compounds. To answer the question of whether there is a characteristic, modular structure of transcription factor binding sites, the upstream genomic regions of such coregulated genes are selected and an automated analysis is performed to identify putative (novel) transcription factor binding sites. Those putative sites can then be mapped onto the entire genome to identify further genes that may have been missed by gene expression analysis.
