Offers promoter data collecting procedure and specific features of plant promoter sequences. PlantProm DB serves as a learning set in developing plant promoter prediction programs. It provides information on plant promoters with experimentally known transcription start site (TSS): (i) DNA sequence of the promoter region, (ii) Nucleotide Frequency Matrices (NFM) for canonical promoter elements, (iii) taxonomic and promoter type classification of promoters.
