Arabidopsis Promoter Element Discovery Tools

These tools are designed to find cis-regulatory motifs using the "promoters" (5' upstream sequences) of a set of co-regulated Arabidopsis genes (for example from a microarray experiment). You can get promoters using a list of "At" identifiers (eg pasted from a spreadsheet) here then use the tools below to look for motifs that occur at statistically unlikely frequency. The tool that searches just for known cis-regulatory elements uses much less of the computer's (and your) time than the one that searches for new elements, so please try this first

FASTA and BLAST searches are currently available to collaborators only.
