Search E.coli genetic network using RegulonDB

A python program,, loads the RegulonDB tab delimited files into hash tables. A second python program,, uses these hash tables to allow users to replace items on a model with items in the RegulonDB database. The interface makes use of the getFromList API function, which also includes the search feature.

With this python function, users can:
  • get RBS, terminator, or promoter sequences along with RegulonDB ID
  • get the list of regulatory parts for one or more selected transcription factor
  • get the list of transcription factors for one or more selected regulatory parts
