Identification of promoters is of great significance for determining transcription site, finding protein coding regions and annotating the functional structures of genes. Computational prediction of promoters and subsequent identification of transcriptional site is most sought after research area in biological science. This communication discusses PR-DFT, a simple algorithm with high specificity and sensitivity for determining promoter regions in human genomic sequences. This computational method relies upon non-redundant and experimentally verified promoter data sets form Eukaryotic Promoter Database (EPD) as training … Continue reading “PR-DFT: A Review of the Computational Approach in Prediction of Eukaryotic Promoter Regions”
