2 retrieve promoter sequences determine transcription factor occupancy Topicsretrieve promoter sequencesdetermine transcription factor occupancybrowse through the epigenetic biochemical markersHistone modifications, DNA methylation etc.,-predict the location of enhancers, silencers and promoters
3 Major Topicsidentify microRNA that have been reported or predicted to interact with a gene
4 Tools identify promoter sequence(s) present in your gene of interest Biobase TransproUCSC genome browserpredict transcription factor binding sitesTransfac (Biobase Match)Browse through the epigenomic markersENCODE Human Epigenome Atlasidentify miRNA that have been reported or predicted to interact with a geneMirtarbaseMirbase
12 Find Promoter Sequence Retrieve promoter sequence for :Human : BCL2, EGFRC. elegans : let-23Drosophila: son of sevenlessYeast: fus3Tips:Go to UCSC genome browserSearch by gene nameClick on UCSC genes/Wormbase genes/Flybase genesClick on Genomic sequence
