BaCelLo | A balanced subcellular localization predictor


Predicts five classes of subcellular localization of proteins in eukaryotes: secretory pathway, cytoplasm, nucleus, mitochondrion and chloroplast. BaCelLo is a method for subcellular localization prediction that adopts a balancing procedure by assuming a uniform a priori probability for the classes. This software distinguishes between animal and fungal organisms. It can be used for large scale analysis of whole genomes to produce an estimate and annotation of the protein content in each subcellular compartment.
