Protein super families

Abstract

When is a protein a Myc?

A sequence signature is a small set of amino acid sites that, when considered simultaneously, provides an accurate identification of a specific set of proteins. Sequence signatures or predictive motifs can be powerful tools in proteomics. I will describe how we have integrated information theory, multivariate statistics and fuzzy logic searching procedures to find small contiguous sets of amino acids that give very accurate probabilistic identifications of protein families. This should be complemented by Hermann Ragg referring to his work on serpins.
