Select which organism to analyze.

Regulatory Element Type

Select whether to analyze protein-coding genes, protein-coding transcripts, pseudogenes, or pseudotranscripts (Annotation source: Gencode v15 [hg19]).

Feature Information

Select the type of identifiers used for your gene or transcript lists.
ID Type:

Gene List

One or more lists of genes (or transcripts, if selected above) to analyze. Identifiers must be of the type selected above. Multiple lists may be separated with "===" (please see Instructions link).

Enter Gene Symbols:
(one per line)
Example: HOXA1

Background Regions

A single list of genes (or transcripts) to use as the population for the hypergeometric test. Format is the same as the gene/transcript list above.

Default: Use all genes/transcripts that have the selected ID type.
All IDs   User List

Analysis Window Parameters

Select the point or region to use as the center of the analysis window.
Feature Type:

Select the size of the analysis window (in bp). Upstream and downstream distances are relative to the feature type selected above.
