Methods for the bioinformatic identification of bacterial lipoproteins encoded in the genomes of Gram-positive bacteria
Bacterial lipoproteins are a diverse and functionally important group of proteins that are amenable to bioinformatic analyses because of their unique signal peptide features. Here we have used aExpand
