We started two databases `TFDB' and `HMDB'. Transcription Factor DataBase (TFD) was originally maintained by D.Gohsh at National Center for Biotechnology Informaion(NCBI), National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health. As NCBI stopped its maintenance since last year, we started a new database, TFDB, to maintain some parts of the database mainly focusing to the DNA binding sequence data. HMDB(Human Mutation DataBase) is a new database collecting Information about mutation in the human genome. As both databases are started very recently, they are still at preliminary stages. We will continue to put more informaions in the future.
