The Eukaryotic Promoter Database (EPD) is an annotated non-redundant collection of eukaryotic POL II promoters, for which the transcription start site has been determined experimentally. Access to promoter sequences is provided by pointers to positions in nucleotide sequence entries. The annotation part of an entry includes description of the initiation site mapping data, cross-references to other databases, and bibliographic references. EPD is structured in a way that facilitates dynamic extraction of biologically meaningful promoter subsets for comparative sequence analysis.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Eukaryotic Promoter Database should match this regular expression:

Example Local Unique Identifier
TA_H3   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Eukaryotic Promoter Database should match this regular expression:

Example CURIE
Metaregistry Eukaryotic Promoter Database

The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are 7 mappings to external registries for epd with 4 unique external prefixes.

Registry Name Registry Metaprefix External Prefix Curate
BioContext biocontext EPD
EDAM Ontology edam 2386
FAIRSharing FAIRSharing logo fairsharing FAIRsharing.yk1krv logo miriam epd
Name-to-Thing Name-to-Thing logo n2t epd
National Center for Biotechnology Information Registry ncbi EPD
UniProt Cross-ref database uniprot DB-0205

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE epd:TA_H3 is used to demonstrate the provides available for epd. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
