  1. Columns 2-5: 2) Detection ratio: the number of clusters aligned to motifs in the database divided by the total cluster number found over 13 TFs; 3) Succeeded: numbers of major TFBSs ranked first in the results; 4) Co-factors: the average numbers of unique co-factors found in databases (e-value<0.05 given by TOMTOM) and 5) Motif cluster: whether a clustering step is used to merge results of a method.
