EffectorP: predicting fungal effector proteins from secretomes using machine learning


EffectorP is a machine learning method for fungal effector prediction in secretomes. EffectorP has been trained to distinguish secreted proteins from secreted effectors in plant-pathogenic fungi.


To run EffectorP, please submit your secreted fungal proteins of interest below. For online submission, the maximum number of protein sequences that can be submitted is 4000. If you want to run EffectorP on your local machine, you can download the current version here.
