Signal Peptide Predictions

I have used a bioperl module called sigcleave.pm, and compared it
with the signal P web server results, see:


If there are discrepancies I recommend the signalP2 results over
sigcleave. This is all PC based stuff, bioperl requires perl, in
linux this is easy, for windows google search for activeperl (free
from activestate but I can't remeber the url).

Hope this is useful.
