Q: How to use BDM-PUB server?
A: Firstly, let's go
to the prediction page at
http://bdmpub.biocuckoo.org/prediction.php. Then input
FASTA-format protein primary sequence(s) into the Textbox.
You can click on the "Example (human XX protein)" button
for an example sequence. After that, choose which cut-off
value you want and press the "Submit" button for the final
prediction results. Although both raw sequence and FASTA
format are permitted, we recommend that users employ the
Q: Now I get all the prediction
results that I need, but I can't automatically analyze
them in my own program.
We have provided this functionality for users' convenience!
After you get the prediction results, you may click the
word here in the
sentence "Download the TAB-deliminated data file from
here", and get a TAB-deliminated result file which
should satisfy the need of automatical processing.
Q: There are some "*" characters in predicted peptides. What's their meaning?
BDM-PUB has deployed a window with a length of 15aa (a lysine/K residue flanking with 7aa upstream and 7aa downstream). For lysine residues at N- and C-terminal that can not constitute a full 15aa peptide, BDM-PUB use "*" characters as pseudo amino acids to help the prediction.
