The Eukaryotic Promoter Database is an annotated non-redundant collection of eukaryotic POL II promoters,
for which the transcription start site has been determined experimentally. Access to promoter sequences is provided
by pointers to positions in nucleotide sequence entries. The annotation part of an entry includes description of the
initiation site mapping data, cross-references to other databases, and bibliographic references. EPD is structured in
a way that facilitates dynamic extraction of biologically meaningful promoter subsets for comparative sequence analysis.
This database contains 4806
promoters from several species.
Current version is based on EMBL 128.
