Welcome to the MAPPER Database

The MAPPER Database contains putative Transcription Factor Binding Sites (TFBSs) located in the upstream sequences of genes from the human, mouse and D.melanogaster genomes. For each transcript, the region scanned extends from 10,000bp upstream of the transcript start to 50bp downstream of the coding sequence start. Therefore, the database contains putative binding sites in the gene promoter and in the initial introns and non-coding exons.

Information displayed for each putative binding site includes the transcription factor name, its position (absolute on the chromosome, or relative to the gene), the score of the prediction, and the region of the gene the site belongs to. If the selected gene has homologs in any of the other two organisms, the program optionally displays the putative TFBSs in the homologs.

You can also create a private MAPPER account, that will allow you to save your results and retrieve them at a later time. If you would like to take advantage of this option, create an account and then log in with your MAPPER account.

The MAPPER Database is part of the MAPPER platform, that also includes the MAPPER Search Engine, and rSNPs. Please go the the MAPPER main page to access the other MAPPER modules.
