I am looking for a program (PC or UNIX-based) or database of
prokaryotic promoter sequences. If it exists, it should be able
to build promoter consensus sequences of promoter regions sorted
by type of gene:
i.e. activators, structurals, etc.
Alternatively, it may be able to recognize a putative promoter sequence
in a DNA, and assign it to a family of promoters...
If such a program does not exist, an structured database of promoters
would be of help. (Though scanning it manually would be painful :-(
If not, any bibliographic reference or review article will be welcome.
Thanks a lot. Please answer to josefina at farmacia.ub.es
