Gateways to the FANTOM5 promoter level mammalian expression atlas

Genome Biol. 2015 Jan 5;16(1):22. doi: 10.1186/s13059-014-0560-6.


The FANTOM5 project investigates transcription initiation activities in more than 1,000 human and mouse primary cells, cell lines and tissues using CAGE. Based on manual curation of sample information and development of an ontology for sample classification, we assemble the resulting data into a centralized data resource ( This resource contains web-based tools and data-access points for the research community to search and extract data related to samples, genes, promoter activities, transcription factors and enhancers across the FANTOM5 atlas.
