REDfly is a curated collection of known Drosophila transcriptional cis-regulatory modules (CRMs), cis-regulatory module segments (CRMsegs), predicted cis-regulatory modules (pCRMs), and transcription factor binding sites (TFBSs). Despite more than 20 years of experimental determination of these elements, the data have never been collected into a single searchable database. REDfly seeks to include all experimentally verified fly regulatory elements along with their DNA sequence, their associated genes, and the expression patterns they direct. Expression patterns are annotated using a defined anatomy ontology to enable high interoperability with FlyBase, FlyExpress, the BDGP in situ hybridization database, and other model organism resources.
