ScanProsite: a reference implementation of a PROSITE scanning tool

Published in Applied Bioinformatics. 2002, vol. 1, no. 2, p. 107-8
Abstract Many different software tools are available publicly to scan the PROSITE database of protein families. However, none of them, to our knowledge, wholly implements the PROSITE syntax, or satisfies all the rules for scanning a pattern against a sequence. We hereby propose a strict definition of how a PROSITE pattern is to be scanned against a sequence, and provide a reference implementation of a tool to scan PROSITE patterns, rules and profiles against protein sequences.
