a database of enhancers identified by high-throughput reporter assays
The enhancer is a short (50~1500 bp) region of DNA sequence that recruits transcription factors (TFs)
to regulate the transcription of target genes. Here, we developed RAEdb,
a database of enhancers identified by high-throughput reporter assays,
including STARR-seq and MPRA. RAEdb includes more than 500,000 enhancers and
7500 Epromoters from 55 samples in 8 studies. It has two advantages over traditional
databases of enhancers: (1) More accurate. (2) The enhancer activity can be quantified.

The manuscript of RAEdb has been completed.
RAEdb is now available online. Cheers!
Data collection is completed.
