A promoter, the DNA region encompassing a gene's transcription start site, largely controls the biological activation of a gene. Dragon Promoter Finder, an advanced system for promoter recognition in vertebrates, uses a collection of models based on multi-sensor integration, signal processing and artificial neural networks. The system minimizes the number of false-positive predictions for various pre-specified sensitivity levels and exhibits several times higher accuracy than other compared systems.
