Accumulated information about over 30,000 full-length cDNA and microarray gene expression data of Oryza sativa enabled us to find motifs commonly existing beside genes simultaneously expressing. Such motifs are expected to play key roles in gene networks, and it also suggests the existence of key trans elements. We are developing a data mining tool to find cis-element candidates from gene lists defined by researchers. Here we report the outline of the tool and the result of preliminary biological test of its usefulness.
