Problem with SLiMFinder bioware webserver

There is currently a problem with the SLiMFinder webserver hosted at UCD, where masking is failing to be performed, regardless of settings. This severely impacts the quality of results. (Disorder, low complexity and n-terminal methionine masking are generally recommended for SLiMFinder.)

I am in communication with the Shields lab to try and get the issue fixed but, until it has been rectified, the SLiMFinder webserver should not be used.

If you wish to run SLiMFinder online, you can do so via the SLiMFinder REST server (see BioInfoSummer 2016 workshop), which can also be run from within Cytoscape using the SLiMScape App.
