Enhancements to the AllAll server at ETHZ
A preliminary version of the ParsePrediction routine has been added to
the all-against-all e-mail server at ETHZ. In addition, the SIAPrediction
routine has been updated and improved.
If ParsePrediction is requested, each position of a multiple protein
alignment is checked wether it might be involved in a break of standard
secondary structure elements (e.g. strands or helices). The strength of
identified parse positions is reported with up to five stars. Multiple
parse positions, in a row, indicate a break in secondary structure much
better than isolated parse positions.
Together with the SIAPrediction routine, the ParsePrediction routine
allows the prediction of secondary structure elements of a protein family
according to the ETH method. For a complete example see . For the
afterwards solved X-ray structure see .
