LMKs search for local sequence motifs that are responsible for directing the protein to the right compartment. In contrast to methods that are based on amino acid composition, LMKs identify linear peptide sequences that are predicted to be responsible for localization. However, LMK algorithms are highly dependent on the prior identification of localization motifs (usually by experimental means) and, overall, they underperform compared to other prediction methods.
