The current matrix library (Matrix Family Library Version 11.1) contains 2,071 weight matrices in six groups (transcription factor binding sites from species fungi, insects, plants, vertebrates, and miscellaneous as well as general core promoter elements).

Group # matrices # matrix families # IUPACs # IUPAC families
Fungi 157 68 --- ---
Insects 92 52 --- ---
Plants 627 122 431 323
Vertebrates 1,157 230 --- ---
Miscellaneous 21 17 --- ---
General Core Promoter Elements 17 11 --- ---
Total 2,071 500431 323

The vertebrate group represents binding site descriptions of 10,473 transcription factors. The plant group represents binding site descriptions of 1,202 transcription factors from several plant species. The fungi group represents binding site descriptions of 140 transcription factors from Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Schizosaccharomyces pombe.

For plants, a IUPAC library containing individual plant transcription factor binding sites is available in addition to the matrix library. The IUPAC library is based on PLACE). Identical and similar TF binding sites of PLACE have been grouped into IUPAC families and very unspecific binding sites (e.g. CANNTG) have been removed.
