Welcome to CollecTF’s documentation!

A play on words using the French collectif [collective] and the acronym for transcription factor [TF], CollecTF is a database of prokaryotic transcription factor binding sites (TFBS). Its main aim is to provide high-quality, manually-curated information on the experimental evidence for transcription factor binding sites, and to map these onto reference bacterial genomes for ease of access and processing. The data submitted to CollecTF gets pushed to the major biological sequence databases, where it is embedded as db_xref links, maximizing the availability of the TF-binding site data and the impact of the research reported by authors.

CollecTF is accessible at http://www.collectf.org. To read more about CollecTF, please see the correspoding Nucleic Acids Research paper (PMID: 24234444).
