Classification of Human Transcription Factors

TFClass is a classification of (so far: human) transcription factors based on the characteristics of their DNA-binding domains. It comprises six levels (superclasses, classes, families, subfamilies, genera and factor species), two of which are optional (subfamilies and factor species). More detailed explanations about the classification scheme and its criteria will be given here. The full classification can also be obtained here as html document and as ontology in obo-format.
