This is an example of the output of the lister program: fispromoter.jpg DNA sequence from E. coli in the
promoter region for the Fis gene.  Below the sequence are
sequence walkers for Fis sites in front of rectangles
(called petals) with various shades of pink to indicate
different information contents.  There are also a number of
sigma 70 promoters shown by walkers in front of blue boxes
(for the -35) and green boxes (for the -10).  It is clear
that Fis regulates itself from this genetic map.
