bio-plasmoap

PlasmoAP is a program for predicting apicoplast targetting sequences in Plasmodium falciparum (the most fatal causative agent of malaria). This biogem implements the PlasmoAP algorithm, designed from the PlasmoAP journal article:

PlasmoAP requires the bio-signalp BioRuby plugin to be installed and therefore SignalP itself. See github.com/wwood/bioruby-signalp for more details.

Specifically, it requires version 3 of SignalP.
