Signal peptide prediction parameter settings

It is possible to set different options prior to running the analysis (see figure 16.1). An organism type should be selected. The default is eukaryote.

You can perform the analysis on several protein sequences at a time. This will add annotations to all the sequences and open a view for each sequence if a signal peptide is found. If no signal peptide is found in the sequence a dialog box will be shown.

The predictions obtained can either be shown as annotations on the sequence, listed in a table or be shown as the detailed and full text output from the SignalP method. This can be used to interpret borderline predictions:
