Summary: The increasing number of available atomic 3D structures of transmembrane channel proteins represents a valuable resource for better understanding their structure–function relationships and to eventually predict their selectivity. Herein, we present PoreLogo, an automatic tool for analysing, visualizing and comparing the amino acid composition of transmembrane channels and its conservation across the corresponding protein family.
