Predicting Antigenic Peptides

Predicting Antigenic Peptides

This is a program that predicts those segments from within a protein sequence that are likely to be antigenic by eliciting an antibody response. The method used here is the method of Kolaskar and Tongaonkar (1990). Predictions are based on a table that reflects the occurrence of amino acid residues in experimentally known segmental epitopes. Segments are only reported if the have a minimum size of 8 residues. The reported accuracy of method is about 75%. The program is located here Predicting Antigenic Peptides
