[…] or PEST-rich motifs). Number of databases were established to catalogue these motifs, including PROSITE, ELM, and Minimotif Miner (MnM) databases [–]. MnM, MEME Suite, QSLiMFinder, SLiMSearch, 3of5, MotifHound, and DoReMi tools can be used to predict motif(s), pattern(s), or shared consensus within input sequence(s) [–]. Another approach uses hidden Markov model (phylo-HMM) to search for evolutio […]

[…] Complementing the experimental approaches, different computational approaches have been developed for the identification of motifs, such as SLiMFinder [], DoReMi [], and MotifHound []. To identify motifs in a given sequence, a combination of sequence properties is typically used such as i) a disorder propensity as motifs are enriched in disordered regions [], ii) sequ […]
