OnTheFly: A Database of Drosophila melanogaster Transcription Factors and their Binding Sites

OnTheFly database is a systematic collection of Drosophila melanogaster transcription factors and their DNA-binding sites. We annotated and classified all Transcription Factors (TFs) predicted in the Drosophila melanogaster genome and collected the known preferred DNA binding sites of the TFs based on the B1H, DNaseI and SELEX experimental methods. OnTheFly houses DNA recognition motifs for 387 different genes encoding TFs (>50% of the Drosophila melanogaster genes encoding TFs).
