Jalview 2.11.0 – Multiple Alignment Editor

Jalview 2.11.0

:: DESCRIPTION

Jalview is a system for interactive WYSIWYG editing, analysis and annotation of multiple sequence alignments. Core features include keyboard and mouse-based editing, multiple views and alignment overviews, and linked structure display with Jmol. Jalview is available in two forms: a lightweight Java applet for use in web applications, and a powerful desktop application that employs web services for sequence alignment, secondary structure prediction and the retrieval of alignments, sequences, annotation and structures from public databases and any DAS 1.53 compliant sequence or annotation server.

BetaTPred2: Prediction of Beta-turns in Proteins using Neural Networks and Multiple Alignment

BetaTPred2

:: DESCRIPTION

The aim of BetaTPred2 server is to predict Beta turns in proteins from multiple alignment by using neural network from the given amino acid sequence. For ? turn prediction, it uses the position specific score matrices generated by PSI-BLAST and secondary structure predicted by PSIPRED. The net is trained and tested on a set of 426 non-homologous protein chains with 7-fold cross-validation. It predicts ? turns in proteins with residue accuracy of 75.5% and MCC value of 0.43.

GammaPred – Prediction of Gamma-turns in Proteins using Multiple Alignment and Secondary Structure Information

GammaPred

:: DESCRIPTION

The GammaPred server predicts the gamma turn residues in the given protein sequence. The method is based on the neural network training on PSI-BLAST generated position specific matrices and PSIPRED predicted secondary structure. Two neural networks with a single hidden layer have been used where the first sequence-to-structure network is trained on PSI-BLAST obtained position specific matrices. The filtering has been done by second structure-to-structure network trained on output of first net and PSIPRED predicted secondary structure. The training has been carried out using error backpropagation with a sum of square error function(SSE).

MONKEY 2.0 – Identify Matches to DNA Motifs in Multiple Alignments

MONKEY 2.0

:: DESCRIPTION

MONKEY is a set of programs designed to search alignments of non-coding DNA sequence for matches to matrices representing the sequence specificity of transcription factors.MONKEY employs probabilistic models of factor specificity and binding-site evolution, on which basis we compute the likelihood that putative sites are conserved and assign statistical significance to each hit.
