This brief appendix serves as a guide for the analysis of functional motifs in proteins. Several database search engines that can be accessed via the World Wide Web are described. Such computerized searches have become the preferred method to scan large sequence and motif databases, as the searches are efficient and the databases are updated frequently. A short list of sorting signals is also included, since these motifs often cannot be predicted reliably by a computer search.
