ampir (short for antimicrobial peptide prediction in r ) identifies antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) based on physico-chemical properties of amino acid sequences. It is optimised for scanning large collections of sequences (eg the predicted proteome for an organism) to identify a suite of putative AMPs.
ampir was developed by Legana Fingerhut and Ira Cooke in the Marine Omics and Marine Molecular Biology labs at James Cook University. It is open source and available for use via this web page or as an R package.
