SLiMSearch is a short, linear motif (SLiM) discovery tool. The tool searches a proteome using a motif consensus to discover putative novel motif instances. Motif attributes known to be strong discriminators of motif functionality, such as accessibility and conservation, are calculated for each instance. Instances are also annotated with experimental, proteomic and genomic data. The tool also allows instance filtering based on keyword, interaction, localisation information. In depth ontology enrichment and conservation analysis tools are also available.
The tool is developed by the Davey Lab in
University College Dublin by Izabella Krystkowiak.
The project is funded by a Science Foundation Ireland Starting Investigator Research Grant (SIRG) grant.
