Prediction of Coronavirus 3CL Proteinase cleavage sites on amino acid sequences

NetCorona predicts coronavirus 3C-like proteinase (or protease) cleavage sites using artificial neural networks on amino acid sequences. Every potential site is scored and a list is compiled in addition to a graphical representation. Refer to publication for more detailed information and performance values.

Instructions Output format Article abstract


Paste a single sequence or several sequences in FASTA format into the field below:

Submit a file in FASTA format directly from your local disk:

Generate graphics   

At most 10 sequences and 50,000 amino acids per submission; each sequence not more than 10,000 amino acids.

The sequences are kept confidential and will be deleted after processing.
