ready EffectiveDB

General Information
The Effective database contains pre-calculated predictions of bacterial secreted proteins and of functional secretion systems. Effective bundles various tools to recognize Type III secretion signals, conserved binding sites of Type III chaperones, eukaryotic-like domains and subcellular targeting signals in the host. Beyond the analysis of arbitrary protein sequence collections, the new release of Effective also provides a "genome-mode", in which protein sequences from nearly complete genomes or metagenomic bins can be screened for the presence of three important secretion systems (type III, IV, VI).
