A knowledge database for all the transcription factors in the soybean genome. SoyDB contains protein sequences, predicted tertiary structures, putative DNA binding sites, domains, homologous templates in the Protein Data Bank, protein family classifications, multiple sequence alignments, consensus protein sequence motifs, web logo of each family, and web links to the soybean transcription factor database PlantTFDB, known EST sequences, and other general protein databases including Swiss-Prot, Gene Ontology, KEGG, EMBL, TAIR, InterPro, SMART, PROSITE, NCBI, and Pfam. The database provides rich annotations, and can be browsed and retrieved through convenient web interfaces. The automated process generates annotations and creates database and website, and can be used to annotate others sequenced species.
