STIFDB [Stress Responsive TranscrIption Factor Database] :

STIFDB [Stress Responsive TranscrIption Factor Database] is a comprehensive collection of abiotic stress responsive genes in Arabidopsis thaliana, with options to identify probable Transcription Factor Binding Sites in their promoters. In the response to abiotic stresses like drought, cold, salinity, high light, heat, etc, ten specific families of transcription factors are known to be involved. HMM-based models are used to identify binding sites of transcription factors belonging to these families. We have also consulted literature reports to cross-validate the Transcription Factor Binding Sites predicted by the method.
