Short, Linear Motif Search SLiMSearch


Alternative name: SLiMSearch4

Allows motif consensus search, annotation and filtering. SLiMSearch is a web-based tool for the discovery of novel short linear motifs (SLiM) instances in a proteome. The framework searches characterized motif specificity determinants to identify putative novel motif instances which are annotated with accessibility information, evolutionary attributes and experimental information. The software can aid biologists in building hypotheses and designing experiments by simplifying the analysis of the functional and evolutionary features of motifs.
