Nomenclature History Notes
DateNote
2002-03-25The names of Saccharomyces cerevisiae TBP-associated factor (TAF) genes have been changed to reflect guidelines recently enodorsed by the yeast community and published in Genes and Development. An explanation of the changes and a table with old and new gene names for S. cerevisiae, H. sapiens, D. melanogaster, C. elegans, and S. pombe may be found in the paper.
