IceLogo is a program that generates a sequence logo for aligned peptide sequences. A sequence logo is a histogram-like presentation in which the bars are vertical stacks of symbols. Stack height reflects the level of pattern conservation in aligned peptide sequences, and the height of individual symbols is a measure of their frequency at a given position.
Unlike other sequence logo generating programs that rely on Shannonâ€™s information theory, IceLogo operates based on probability theory. Basically, the algorithm takes the experimental set and compares it with a reference set, which can be configured by the user. These two sets are used in a probability analysis, and the results are shown in the resulting sequence logo.
IceLogo's functions are freely available as an API using the SOAP protocol.
The following is a list of sample source code snippets that matched your search term. Source code snippets are chunks of source code that were found out on the Web that you can cut and paste into your own source code. Whereas most of the sample source code we've curated for our directory is for consuming APIs, we occasionally find something interesting on the API provider side of things. If you know of some sample source code that would be of interest to the ProgrammableWeb community, we'd like to know about it.
