Motivation: Amyloidogenic regions in polypeptide chains are very important because such regions are responsible for amyloid formation and aggregation. It is useful to be able to predict positions of amyloidogenic regions in protein chains.

    Protein and peptide sequences contain clues for functional prediction. A challenge is to predict sequences that show low or no homology to proteins or peptides of known function. A machine learning method, support vector machines (SVM), has recently been explored for predicting functional class...

    Background: Profile-based analysis of multiple sequence alignments (MSA) allows for accurate comparison of protein families. Here, we address the problems of detecting statistically confident dissimilarities between (1) MSA position and a set of predicted residue frequencies, and (2) between two...
