KinomeSelector is a tool that helps selecting the minimal set of kinases in inhibitor studies without loosing coverage. The underlying data pooles multiple kinase inhibitor studies to calculate the relationship between sequence similarity of kinases and their inhibitor profile similarities.
Under the assumption that kinases with similar domain sequences are inhibited by the same inhibitors, users can generate their own kinase panels using the interface in a simple two step process.
Step 1: Select an appropriate sequence similarity cut-off. The higher the selected cut-off, the more similar two kinase domains have to be to be considered inhibited by tge same substance.
Step 2: Select the kinases until a full coverage is given. Pink marks the selected kinases while yellow shows the kinases covered by similarity.
In addition, we provide two pre-computed sets of kinase panels with different similarity cut-offs.
The algorithm is iterative and consists of 3 steps: A - sorting, B - assigning, C - removing.
