  • Soup-to-nuts overview not provided by any other book
  • Objective, high-level, genome-based viewpoint, with subsidiary examples, rather than “paradigm by anecdote”
  • Combines in-depth analysis of molecular biology literature with computational-based large-scale analyses
Transcription factors are - in the most common use of the term - proteins that possess sequence-specific DNA-binding activity, and either directly or indirectly influence the transcription of genes in proximity to the binding site. Transcription factors are the primary interface between the cell and the genome, and in aggregate control not only regulation of transcription but also genome organization, and play a central role in many aspects of physiology and evolution. This book will provide a reference for the major aspects of transcription factor biochemistry, function, and evolution. Contents will range from a general catalogue of known transcription factor classes, origins and evolution of transcription factor types, and mechanisms of interaction with chromatin, the nuclear scaffold, and RNA polymerase.
