firestar – Predicting Functional Residues from Structural Templates and Alignment Reliability

firestar

:: DESCRIPTION

firestar is a server for predicting catalytic and ligand-binding residues in protein sequences.firestar makes predictions of functionally important residues using the large inventory of functionally important residues in the FireDB[3] database. The reliability of the transfer of functional information between the functionally important residues in FireDB and the query sequence is evaluated via the local residue conservation between the two sequences.
