Promoter Prediction in Genetics

Group: Jianzhuang, Xuejuan and Xiaomin.

Topic: Promoter Prediction in genetics

Introduction: A promoter is a region of DNA that facilitates the transcription of a particular gene. I am interested in this problem because this is one of the most important, difficult and popular topics in the genomics.

Background:

There are many books and publications available about promoter prediction. The link for some reviews are provided below: [http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/bookshelf/br.fcgi?book=eurekah&part=A31978#A31978]

Search: I have built a search filter which contains the key word of ‘promoter prediction’. NCBI will send me the current articles about promoter prediction to my email.

Tips: This is a promoter database [http://rulai.cshl.edu/cgi-bin/TRED/tred.cgi?process=home]. You can download lots of useful information in this database.

Questions:

Seems there is no way to customize the alert functionality. Where can I create a filter similarly to search filter?

To do this research, backgrounds from Mathmatics, Engineering and Biology are needed. I need some input from others.
