NAME ^

Bio::Tools::Signalp - parser for Signalp output

SYNOPSIS ^

 use Bio::Tools::Signalp;

 my $parser = Bio::Tools::Signalp->new(-fh =>$filehandle );

 while( my $sp_feat = $parser->next_result ) {
   if ($sp_feat->score > 0.9) {
      push @likely_sigpep, $sp_feat;
   }
 }

DESCRIPTION ^

SignalP predicts the presence and location of signal peptide cleavage sites in amino acid sequences.

Bio::Tools::Signalp parses the output of SignalP to provide a Bio::SeqFeature::Generic object describing the signal peptide found, if any. It returns a variety of tags extracted from the NN and HMM analysis. Most importantly, the score() attribute contains the NN probability of this being a true signal peptide.

FEEDBACK ^

Mailing Lists

 User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other
 Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to
 the Bioperl mailing list.  Your participation is much appreciated.
