Abstract Promoter is an important component regulating gene expression. It binds to RNA polymerase to form a transcription initiation complex that controls the initiation time and the level of gene expression. Studies on promoters may contribute to elucidating the underlying mechanism of gene expression regulation so as to lay the foundation for the analysis of gene regulatory networks. In this article, we reviewed the research methods of insect promoters, mainly about the methods for the identification of insect promoters and their specific components and the application of insect promoters.
