The HLA-DR4Pred is an SVM and ANN based HLA-DRB1*0401(MHC class II alleles) binding peptides prediction method. The accuracy of the SVM and ANN based methods is ~86% and ~78% respectively.The performence of the methods was tested through 5 set cross-validation. The training of SVM and ANN was done by using the freely availaible SVM_LIGHT and SNNS packages respectively. The data for training of neural network and SVM model has been extracted from MHCBN database.This method will be useful in cellular immunology, Vaccine design, immunodiagnostics, immunotherapeuatics and molecular understanding of autoimmune susceptibility.
