JIPs Quickstart

JIPs Quickstart

What is it? Java GUI for InterProScan (JIPS) is a graphical user interface for finding new motif/domains/fingerprints in repeated Interproscan searches. JIPS compares results from InterProScan searches performed with two versions of a InterPro database and highlights new motifs/Domains/fingerprints which are from the updated database. Results are displayed in an easy-to-use tabular format. JIPS also contains tools to assist with ortholog-based comparative studies of protein signatures.
JIPS is an efficient tool for performing repeated InterProScans on large batches of protein sequences, tracking and viewing search results, and mining the collected data.
How do I get started? JIPS can be accessed for free at www.virology.ca.
