Background: Promoters are key players in gene regulation. They receive signals from various
sources (e.g. cell surface receptors) and control the level of transcription initiation, which largely
determines gene expression. In vertebrates, transcription start sites and surrounding regulatory
elements are often poorly defined. To support promoter analysis, we present CORG http://
