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.

New ! January 2015: we are in the process of re-organising our mirror servers into taxon-specific servers, to better suit the drastic increase of available genomes.
