1. Specify the input sequencesAll the input sequences must be in one-letter amino acid code. The allowed alphabet (not case sensitive) is as follows:
All the other symbols will be converted to X before processing. The sequences can be input in the following two ways:
Both ways can be employed at the same time: all the specified sequences will be processed. However, there may be not more than 2,000 sequences and 200,000 amino acids in one submission. The maximal allowed sequence length is 4000 amino acids.
TargetP predictions are based on the 130 N-terminal residues of each input sequence. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to include the N-terminus for all sequences; missing N-terminal residues make the prediction more difficult and less reliable. Submitting more than 130 residues does not influence the prediction in any way (apart from making it slower).
The sequence names may be of any length, a maximum of 30 characters is
preserved throughout the prediction. However, the special characters in
the names (e.g. ";" and ">") will be changed into "_" (underscore)
for technical reasons.
2. Customize your run
3. Submit the jobClick on the "Submit" button. The status of your job (either 'queued' or 'running') will be displayed and constantly updated until it terminates and the server output appears in the browser window.
At any time during the wait you may enter your e-mail address and simply leave the window. Your job will continue; you will be notified by e-mail when it has terminated. The e-mail message will contain the URL under which the results are stored; they will remain on the server for 24 hours for you to collect them.
