SplicePort -- an interactive splice-site analysis tool

What you can do:
A web-based tool for splice-site analysis.
Highlights:
  • Allows the user to make splice-site predictions for submitted sequences.
  • In addition, the user can also browse the rich catalog of features that underlies these predictions, and which we have found capable of providing high classification accuracy on human splice sites.
  • Feature selection is optimized for human splice sites, but the selected features are likely to be predictive for other mammals as well.
  • With our interactive feature browsing and visualization tool, the user can view and explore subsets of features used in splice-site prediction (either the features that account for the classification of a specific input sequence or the complete collection of features).
  • Selected feature sets can be searched, ranked or displayed easily.
  • The user can group features into clusters and frequency plot WebLogos can be generated for each cluster.
  • The user can browse the identified clusters and their contributing elements, looking for new interesting signals, or can validate previously observed signals.
