Protease Mapping

Bioconductor version: 3.16

Retrieval of experimentally derived protease- and cleavage data derived from the MEROPS database. Proteasy contains functions for mapping peptide termini to known sites where a protease cleaves. This package also makes it possible to quickly look up known substrates based on a list of (potential) proteases, or vice versa - look up proteases based on a list of substrates.
