SignalP 6.0h-foss-2022b-fast

There is a newer install of SignalP

The SignalP 5.0 tool predicts the presence of signal peptides and the location of their cleavage sites in proteins from Archaea, Gram-positive Bacteria, Gram-negative Bacteria and Eukarya. In Bacteria and Archaea, SignalP 5.0 can discriminate between three types of signal peptides Sec/SPI (standard signal peptide), Sec/SPII (lipoprotein signal peptide) and Tat/SPI (tat signal peptide). SignalP 5.0 is based on a deep convolutional and recurrent neural network architecture including a conditional random field.

Accessing SignalP 6.0h-foss-2022b-fast

To load the module for SignalP 6.0h-foss-2022b-fast please use this command on the BEAR systems (BlueBEAR and BEAR Cloud VMs):

📋 module load bear-apps/2022b
module load SignalP/6.0h-foss-2022b-fast

BEAR Apps Version




The listed architectures consist of two part: OS-CPU. The OS used is represented by EL and there are several different processor (CPU) types available on BlueBEAR. More information about the processor types on BlueBEAR is available on the BlueBEAR Job Submission page.

Using Models

The SignalP pytorch model isn't stored in the application directory but in $BB_APPS_DATA/SignalP/models

To specify this alternative directory or any directory of your choosing, pass the --model_dir option to your command string.

For example: signalp6 --fastafile /path/to/input.fasta --organism other --output_dir path/to/be/saved --format txt --mode fast --model_dir "$BB_APPS_DATA/SignalP/models"

You can install additional models of your choosing by following the instructions here and specifying them with the method described above.
