Database of Orthologous Promoters
Database overview

DoOP is a database of eukaryotic promoter sequences (upstream regions), aiming to facilitate the recognition of regulatory sites conserved between species. Based on the Arabidopsis thaliana and Homo sapiens genome annotation, we collected the orthologous promoter sequences from Viridiplantae and Chordata species.


You can search the database with sequences or text (annotation) to find promoter clusters of different genes. In addition to the sequence and annotation data, the positions of the conserved regions and transcription start sites can be viewed graphically.


The detailed description of the database can be found in the following article:
