Discriminative HMMs (Hidden Markov models) predicts localizations using motifs that are present in a compartment but absent in other, nearby, compartments by utilizing an hierarchical structure that mimics the protein sorting mechanism.
StarORF facilitates the identification of the protein(s) encoded within a DNA sequence. Using StarORF, the DNA sequence is first transcribed into RNA and then translated into all the potential ORFs (Open Reading Frame) encoded within each of the six translation frames (3 in the forward direction and 3 in the reverse direction).
CMView is an intervative contact map visualization and analysis tool. The tool provides functions for contact map calculation from structure, basic editing, visualization in contact map and 3D space and structural comparison with different built-in alignment methods.
HOLLOW facilitates the production of surface images of proteins. Hollow generates fake atoms that identifies voids, pockets, channels and depressions in a protein structure specified in the PDB format.
LACS ( linear analysis of chemical shifts) is a validation tool for protein backbone NMR chemical shift data. Based on the observation that secondary chemical shift (difference between the chemical shift of an amino acid and its random coil chemical shift) well indicate the local backbone geometry, LACS correlates the secondary chemical shifts of a nucleus to that of Ca-Cb of itself (referencing independent), thus avoiding any geometry or structure assumptions, to estimate referencing offsets and identify possible miss-assignments.
