Transcription regulation plays an important role in bacterial activity. The operon concept coined by François Jacob and Jacques Monod has had a considerable effect on investigations into gene expression regulation, including modeling. However, most such studies have considered the regulation models devised manually for one or several operons. For that reason, the objective of the present study was automated genome model reconstruction for different bacteria. The suggested algorithm accounted for all possible interactions of transcription factors and their binding sites in an operon’s promoter region. Transcription factor enumeration was performed using the deep-first search technique. The obtained models are of interest for those involved in the research of transcription factor regulatory effects on bacterial gene expression in microbiology and biotechnology.
