Integrates several open access repositories of curated cis-elements, DNA motifs, and TFs into a unique repository. footprintDB systematically annotates the binding interfaces of the TFs by exploiting protein–DNA complexes deposited in the Protein Data Bank. Each entry in footprintDB is thus a DNA motif linked to the protein sequence of the TF(s) known to recognize it, and in most cases, the set of predicted interface residues involved in specific recognition.
