Currently available computational tools, which are many, provide a researcher with the multitude of options for prediction of intrinsic disorder in a protein of interest and for finding at least some of its disorder-based functions. This chapter provides a highly subjective guideline on how not to be lost in the “dark forest” of available tools for the analysis of intrinsic disorder. By no means it gives a unique pathway through this forest, but simply presents some of the tools the author uses in his everyday research.
