SLiMDisc -- Short, Linear Motif Discovery

What you can do:
Find shared motifs in proteins with a common attribute.
  • The SLiMDisc web server corrects for common ancestry in describing shared motifs, concentrating on the convergently evolved motifs.
  • The server returns a listing of the most interesting motifs found within unmasked regions, ranked according to an information content-based scoring scheme.
  • It allows interactive input masking, according to various criteria.
  • Scoring allows for evolutionary relationships in the data sets through treatment of BLAST local alignments.
  • Alongside this ranked list, visualizations of the results improve understanding of the context of suggested motifs, helping to identify true motifs of interest.
  • These visualizations include alignments of motif occurrences, alignments of motifs and their homologues and a visual schematic of the top-ranked motifs.
  • Additional options for filtering and/or re-ranking motifs further permit the user to focus on motifs with desired attributes.
  • Returned motifs can also be compared with known SLiMs from the literature.
