Sequence Determinants of Protein Sorting Into and Across Membranes
My intentions with this contribution are twofold: to describe briefly some methods of computer-aided sequence analysis in molecular biology, and to review the most important results obtained through such theoretical studies in the related fields of protein sorting and membrane protein biogenesis.
