Database Description

eSLDB (eukaryotic Subcellular Localization DataBase) collects the annotations of subcellular localization of eukaryotic proteomes. For each sequence, the database lists localization obtained adopting three different approaches: 1) experimentally determined (when available); 2) homology based (when possible); 3) predicted. The latter is computed with a suite of machine learning based methods, developed in house. All the data are available at our website and can be searched by sequence, by protein code and/or by protein description. Furthermore a more complex search can be performed combining different search fields and keys. All the data contained in the database can be freely downloaded in flat file format.
