SLiMPrints 3.0


A motif discovery tool to identify relatively over-constrained proximal groupings of residues within intrinsically disordered regions, indicative of putatively functional motifs. Analysis based on least divergent orthologue alignments created using a database of EnsEMBL metazoan (plus Saccharomyces cerevisiae) genomes (release 59).


Find Short, Linear Motif fingerPrints (SLiMPrints). Many take several minutes if the alignment has not been pre-computed.

Example: P04637
