Web services

Here in our lab we are continuously developing new bioinformatics web services to make our research available to the community at large. See below for a list of services currently available.

ProtCal (v1)
Desc: A software package for computing multiple numerical descriptors for protein sequences and structures.

PIPE (3b)
Desc: Protein-protein interaction prediction engine (PIPE) v3b. Predicts PPIs based on co-occurance of short interaction-mediating protein sequences. Works for multiple species. Has been demonstrated to be the most accurate (highest precision/recall) when operating at high specificities (99.95%) required for high-throughput analysis.
