2017-12-18) is now on GitHub. Funding for SLiMSuite development is proving elusive at present, so this release is a little less organised (and later) than planned. The main additions are various programs in development for PacBio genomics and a draft SLiMSuite parser Shiny app in the new
shiny/ directory. The old
packages/ directory has also been removed. Check the
docs/release/ files and see below for more information on this release.
Another release with improved documentation is currently planned for early 2018. As ever, if you want access to the latest code, email to download the full svn repository.

There is currently a problem with the SLiMFinder webserver hosted at UCD, where masking is failing to be performed, regardless of settings. This severely impacts the quality of results. (Disorder, low complexity and n-terminal methionine masking are generally recommended for SLiMFinder.)
I am in communication with the Shields lab to try and get the issue fixed but, until it has been rectified, the bioware.ucd.ie SLiMFinder webserver should not be used.

SLiMSuite species codes are designed to follow the UniprotKB organism (species) identification codes,
using them wherever possible. They form part of the standard
gene_SPECIES__AccNum naming convention for sequences within
SLiMSuite. Species codes should be upper case, and unique for each species.
