LipoP 1.0 Server

Prediction of lipoproteins and signal peptides in Gram negative bacteria

The LipoP 1.0 server produces predictions of lipoproteins and discriminates between lipoprotein signal peptides, other signal peptides and n-terminal membrane helices in Gram-negative bacteria.

Note: Although LipoP 1.0 has been trained on sequences from Gram-negative bacteria only, the following paper reports that it has a good performance on sequences from Gram-positive bacteria also:

PORTABLE VERSION

Would you prefer to run LipoP at your own site? LipoP 1.0 is available as a stand-alone software package, with the same functionality as the service above. For now only a Linux version exists. There is a download page for academic users; other users are requested to contact CBS Software Package Manager at software@cbs.dtu.dk.
