Regulatory Sequence Analysis Tools

Welcome to Regulatory Sequence Analysis Tools (RSAT).

This web site provides a series of modular computer programs specifically designed for the detection of regulatory signals in non-coding sequences.

RSAT servers have been up and running since 1997. The project was initiated by Jacques van Helden, and is now pursued by the RSAT team.
