ChloroP 1.1 Server
The computations required by this service are executed on the bioinformatics
cloud provided by CSC (IT Center for
Science Ltd) in Finland. The collaboration is a part of the effort to
coordinate the activities of the Nordic ELIXIR nodes
The ChloroP server predicts the presence of chloroplast transit peptides
(cTP) in protein sequences and the location of potential cTP cleavage sites.
A related service TargetP predicts the subcellular
location of proteins by integrating predictions of chloroplast transit
peptides, signal peptides and mitochondrial targeting peptides.
At most 50 sequences and 200,000 amino acids per submission;
each sequence not more than 4,000 amino acids.
The sequences are kept confidential and will be deleted after processing.

Would you prefer to run ChloroP at your own site? ChloroP 1.1 is available
as a stand-alone software package, with the same functionality as the service
above. Ready-to-ship packages exist for the most common UNIX platforms. There
for academic users; other users are requested to contact CBS Software Package
Manager at email@example.com.
