Foxtail millet has recently been regarded as a model crop for studying the systems biology of millets and bioenergy grass species. For expediting the functional genomic studies in this model crop as well as in the related millets and bioenergy grasses, we have developed a comprehensive transcription factor database. Our foxtail millet transcription factors database (FmTFDb: ) encompasses 2,297 putative TFs in 55 families along with its sequence features, chromosomal locations, tissue-specific gene expression data, gene ontology (GO) assignment, and phylogeny. FmTFDb is intended to provide the users an unrestricted public access in retrieving and visualizing the individual members of a TF family through a set of query interfaces and analysis tools, including the BLAST search, annotation query interfaces, and tools to identify enriched GO terms and to visualize physical maps. This FmTFDb will serve as a promising central resource for researchers as well as breeders who are dedicated towards crop improvement of millets and bioenergy grasses.
