logo Easy Promoter Prediction Program (EP3)


EP3 is a tool for the identification of the core region of a eukaryotic gene promoter. It uses universal properties of the promoter to detect those regions in a whole genome context. EP3 has been tested on several eukaryotes ranging from protists to human. On human it is, at the moment, the best performing tool to identify regions that are associated with transcription initiation.

Start at once



EP3 should only be run on a complete genome at once when not using a precalculated model. The program requires no training, but does need to extract some information from the sequence.
