Integrated data

We retrieved the labeled data needed for our supervised machine learning approach for TF/Non-TF classification and structural characterization from diverse data bases. Specifically, TF sequences were obtained from the commercial, hand-curated databases TransFac (Biobase) and MATBASE (Genomatix). the two databases were unified, filtered for redundant entries, and their structural superclasses were obtained from TransFac. Furthermore, a dataset of Non-TF sequences was compiled by querying UniProt with specific keywords which are unambigously referring to other functional classes of proteins (e.g., "histone", "kinase", "transmembrane protein", "chaperon", etc.).
