The BION web server addresses the demand for tools of predicting surface bound ions, for which specific interactions are not crucial; thus, they are difficult to predict.
The new BION algorithm predicts the location of the surface bound ions. It is more efficient and accurate compared to the previous version since it uses more advanced clustering algorithm in combination with pairing rules. In addition, the BION webserver allows specifying the pH and the salt concentration in predicting ions positions.
