Below is a description of the PromoterCAD Application.
Name: RIKEN GenoCon
Affiliation: RIKEN The Institute of Physical and Chemical Research
The program provides several plugin tools for promoter designs MotifExpress, and MotifCircadian function, as well as LocusSelect function for graph visualization of expression data. MotifExpress picks up the sequence motifs from the gene with maximum/minimum expression in a specific developmental condition or time of day. MotifCircadian picks up the motifs with maximum circadian amplitude. Output includes visualization such as HighCharts graph visualization of expression data under experimental conditions (AtGenExpress) and time evolution of expression under circadian conditions (DIURNAL). Programmers can easily fork and add to these functions following the PromoterCAD manuals and help pages:
