JASPAR (http://jaspar.genereg.net) is an open-access database storing curated, non-redundant transcription factor (TF) binding profiles representing transcription factor binding preferences as position frequency matrices for multiple species in six taxonomic groups. For this 2016 release, we expanded the JASPAR CORE collection with 494 new TF binding profiles (315 in vertebrates, 11 in nematodes, 3 in insects, 1 in fungi and 164 in plants) and updated 59 profiles (58 in vertebrates and 1 in… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

JASPAR 2020: update of the open-access database of transcription factor binding profiles
TLDR
In this 8th release of JASPAR, the CORE collection has been expanded with 245 new PFMs, and 156 PFMs were updated, and the genomic tracks, inference tool, and TF-binding profile similarity clusters were updated.
JASPAR 2018: update of the open-access database of transcription factor binding profiles and its web framework
TLDR
The JASPAR 2018 CORE vertebrate collection of PFMs was used to predict TF-binding sites in the human genome and this update comes with a new web framework with an interactive and responsive user-interface, along with new features.
JASPAR 2018: update of the open-access database of transcription factor binding profiles and its web framework
TLDR
The JASPAR 2018 CORE vertebrate collection of PFMs was used to predict TF-binding sites in the human genome and comes with a new web framework with an interactive and responsive user-interface, along with new features.
PlantTFDB 4.0: toward a central hub for transcription factors and regulatory interactions in plants
With the goal of providing a comprehensive, high-quality resource for both plant transcription factors (TFs) and their regulatory interactions with target genes, we upgraded plant TF database
HOCOMOCO: towards a complete collection of transcription factor binding models for human and mouse via large-scale ChIP-Seq analysis
TLDR
A nearly doubled volume of published in vivo experiments on transcription factor (TF) binding is profited from to expand the repertoire of binding models, replace low-quality models previously based on in vitro data only and cover more than a hundred TFs with previously unknown binding specificities.
Factorbook: an updated catalog of transcription factor motifs and candidate regulatory motif sites
TLDR
An update to Factorbook is presented, which significantly expands the breadth of cell type and TF coverage and includes an expanded motif catalog derived from thousands of ENCODE Phase II and III ChIP-seq experiments and HT-SELEX experiments to annotate a comprehensive collection of genome-wide candidate TF binding sites.
A novel method for improved accuracy of transcription factor binding site prediction
TLDR
Evaluation of DRAF on 98 human ChIP-seq datasets shows on average 1.54%, 1.96- and 5.19-fold reduction of false positives at the same sensitivities compared to models from HOCOMOCO, TRANSFAC and DeepBind, respectively, which suggests that one can efficiently replace the PWM models for TFBS prediction by a small number of D RAF models that significantly improve prediction accuracy.
TEPIC 2—an extended framework for transcription factor binding prediction and integrative epigenomic analysis
TLDR
This work presents TEPIC 2 a framework allowing for fast, accurate and versatile prediction, and analysis of TF binding from epigenetics data, which supports 30 species with binding motifs, computes TF gene and scores up to two orders of magnitude faster than before due to improved implementation.
A map of cis-regulatory modules and constituent transcription factor binding sites in 77.5% regions of the human genome
TLDR
A new algorithm dePCRM2 for predicting CRMs and constituent transcription factor (TF) binding sites (TFBSs) by integrating numerous TF ChIP-seq datasets based on a new ultra-fast, accurate motif-finding algorithm and an efficient combinatory motif pattern discovery method is developed.
ReMap 2018: an updated atlas of regulatory regions from an integrative analysis of DNA-binding ChIP-seq experiments
TLDR
ReMap 2018 provides a significant update of the ReMap database, providing an in depth view of the complexity of the regulatory landscape in human.

JASPAR 2010: the greatly expanded open-access database of transcription factor binding profiles
TLDR
The JASPAR database now uses versioning of matrices, and classification of TF families has been improved by adopting a new DNA-binding domain nomenclature, and three new special collections provide matrix profile data produced by recent alternative high-throughput approaches.
JASPAR 2014: an extensively expanded and updated open-access database of transcription factor binding profiles
TLDR
The fifth major release greatly expands the heart of JASPAR—the JAS PAR CORE subcollection, which contains curated, non-redundant profiles—with 135 new curated profiles, mainly derived from published chromatin immunoprecipitation-seq experimental datasets.
A new generation of JASPAR, the open-access repository for transcription factor binding site profiles
TLDR
JASPAR CORE is an expanded version of the original, non-redundant collection of annotated, high-quality matrix-based transcription factor binding profiles, JAS PAR FAM—a collection of familial TFBS models and JASPAR phyloFACTS—a set of matrices computationally derived from statistically overrepresented, evolutionarily conserved regulatory region motifs from mammalian genomes.
JASPAR, the open access database of transcription factor-binding profiles: new content and tools in the 2008 update
TLDR
JASPAR is a popular open-access database for matrix models describing DNA-binding preferences for transcription factors and other DNA patterns that has been expanded and equipped with additional functions aimed at both casual and power users.
JASPAR: an open-access database for eukaryotic transcription factor binding profiles
TLDR
JASPAR is an open-access database of annotated, high-quality, matrix-based transcription factor binding site profiles for multicellular eukaryotes that were derived exclusively from sets of nucleotide sequences experimentally demonstrated to bind transcription factors.
TFClass: a classification of human transcription factors and their rodent orthologs
TLDR
In the present version of TFClass, all mouse and rat orthologs have been linked to the human TFs, and the mouse orthologies have been arranged in an independent ontology.
The Next Generation of Transcription Factor Binding Site Prediction
TLDR
The capacity of TFFMs to accurately model DNA-protein interactions, while providing a single unified framework suitable for the next generation of TFBS prediction, is demonstrated.
A Functional and Evolutionary Perspective on Transcription Factor Binding in Arabidopsis thaliana[C][W]
TLDR
An integrative meta-analysis of 27 transcription factor profiling experiments used to examine the organization and mechanisms underlying transcription factor regulation on a genome-wide scale provides several lines of evidence that TF binding at plant HOT regions is functional, in contrast to that in animals, and not merely the result of accessible chromatin.
Evaluation of methods for modeling transcription factor sequence specificity
TLDR
The results indicate that simple models based on mononucleotide position weight matrices trained by the best methods perform similarly to more complex models for most TFs examined, but fall short in specific cases.
