Comments "The simplest definition of a gene's putative promoter region is the DNA sequence located 5' of the corresponding ORF and stretching to the upstream ORF. Extracting promoter regions for all genes according to this definition revealed the median length of all promoters in the S. cerevisiae genome is 455 bp and that the length of promoters varies greatly (fig. 1)."
