Gateway-compatible yeast one-hybrid (Y1H) assays provide a convenient gene-centered (DNA to protein) approach to identify transcription factors that can bind a DNA sequence of interest. We present Y1H resources, including clones for 988 of 1,434 (69%) predicted human transcription factors, that can be used to detect both known and new interactions between human DNA regions and transcription factors.
