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
The full classification can also be
as html document and as
ontology in obo-format.
