PSIPRED Latest News


Authors: David Jones, Kevin Bryson & Liam McGuffin

PSIPRED is a Web based protein structure prediction service hosted
by the Protein Bioinformatics Lab at the University of Warwick, U.K.

Three prediction methods are currently implemented. PSIPRED is the
most accurate method currently available for the prediction of protein
secondary structure. MEMSAT2 predicts transmembrane protein structure
and topology from multiple sequence information. GenTHREADER
offers protein tertiary structure prediction by profile-based fold

*** NEW THIS MONTH: a facility has been added to generate publication quality
colour cartoon representations of PSIPRED secondary structure results.

Binary versions of the PSIPRED secondary structure prediction software
can also be downloaded for SGI, Linux and Sun systems from the following URL:



PSIPRED/MEMSAT/GenTHREADER Server: Free to academics. Commercial users must
obtain a license to access it.

PSIPRED Binaries: Free both to academic and commercial users - however the
program may not be sold or incorporated into a commercial package. Please see
the program documentation for full details on the licensing terms.
