One thing on the Net that allows you to search for transcription factor
binding sites using yeast or plant, vertebrate and arthropode databases is
server courtesy of our Japanese colleagues that can be found at
I find it very useful. We still use our own mapping module from DNASTAR
package where I inserted consensus binding sites for yeast factors as
"new" restriction enzymes. This allows "mapping" with binding sites of an
entire chromosome at once. This works fairly well.
