Note

This class respects the notions that 1) a source of information about transcription factors should have a name, 2) each source has its own 'native' nomenclature for the factors themselves, 3) it is common to use the gene symbol to refer to the transctiption factor, and 4) additional metadata will frequently be required to establish information about provenance of assertions about transcription factors.
