We show how DNA promoters of several species exhibit peculiar features that can be related to evolutionary constraints. In particular, we discuss how promoters can be clustered into classes corresponding to different biological functionality. We present also an effective method designed for recovering most of the quasi-regular subsequences that play an important role in gene expression and regulation.
