Represents a bioinformatics resource concerning deciphering chemical structures of ribosomally synthesized and post-translationally modified peptides (RiPPs) through genome mining. The RiPPMiner supplies information regarding modification system, leader and core sequence, cross-links and gene cluster, precursor sequence and modified residues. This tool also contains a web app function allowing the distinction of RiPP precursors from other small proteins and the classification of precursors into 12 sub-classes of RiPPs. It can spot correct cross-link pattern in a core peptide into a large number of combinatorial possibilities.
