Plant Transcription Factor Database PlantTFDB


A database of functional and evolutionary study of plant transcription factors. With the version 4.0, PlantTFDB offers 320 370 TFs from 165 species. Three types of annotation provide more directly clues to investigate functional mechanisms underlying: (i) a set of high-quality, non-redundant TF binding motifs derived from experiments, (ii) multiple types of regulatory elements identified from highthroughput sequencing data and (iii) regulatory interactions curated from literature and inferred by combining TF binding motifs and regulatory elements.
