    Abstract: Promoters are significant cis-acting elements in genomes and play important roles in gene regulation. Each gene is regulated by a specific type of promoter, so determining the type of promoter for regulation of a gene is crucial to explore the gene function. Although some computational methods to predict promoters have been proposed, their performa... Show More

    Abstract: Background: A cascade of enzymes acting in union is involved in the natural wound healing pharmacology of humans making the process a lengthy one. This in turns necessitates new synthetic molecules effective in accelerating the wound healing process. Objective: The present work deals with synthetic molecules aimed at healing wounds targeting the es... Show More
