Updated TF network to determine new relationships
Used improved algorithms to detect new regulatory relationships in the transcription factor network
Fig. 3 Shows that the effect on Cin5 was to gain approximately 10 new interactions and lose approximately two as compared to the older model. A figure of the new network was downloaded. PDF format

TF-target interactions in DNA damage response
Measured binding locations(ChIP-chip) of damage-related transcription factors (including Cin5) after exposure to MMS. Validated by checking against binding in knock-out strains for TFs.
Downloaded the MMS and Untreated ChIP datasets to be filtered for Cin5p targets, Excel spreadsheet of p values for binding.

TF network discovered through systematic deletions
Performed microarray analysis of knockout strains for many transcription factors and compared expression profiles to determine regulatory relationships. Allows distinguishing between activated and repressed transcription factor targets
Downloaded the filtered and unfiltered network in X-score format. Gene-gene-value triples.

Cold Shock Temporal Network Data
Used new algoithm to construct temporal networks of yeast's response to various stresses, including cold shock. For cold shock data, the paper analyzes data from the Gasch, et al. (2000) paper. Supplementary data has cold shock temporal response, but does not show any interactions between transcription factors and targets. (Note: the Gasch et al. paper does not have a true "cold shock" response. They only measure the effect of a temperature downshift from 37°C to 25°C. Cold shock is defined in the range of 10°C to 18°C
