VitaPred is a SVM (Support Vector Machines) based prediction method for the vitamin-interacting residues in protein sequences. Vitamins play vital role in the cell and involves in the various enzymatic reaction and functions as a cofactor. VitaPred predicts that which amino acid residues in the protein sequence will interact with the vitamins. An example of protein-vitamin binding given in the following diagram, where pyridoxal 5′-phosphate (PLP, red color) interacts with specific residues (yellow color) of a protein (cyan color).
