	We need more information.  Do you want a mammalian cell system?  
A plant cell system?  A yeast system?  Or and E. coli system?

	Even within these broad groups, some inducible promoters are 
"better" for some things and some are "better" for others.  By "best" do 
you mean highest level of expression?  Most reproduclible level of induction?
Lowest background in non-induced cells?  Or other factors?

:     Thanks in advance.
