PSIPRED is a new Web based protein structure prediction server available
from the Jones group at the University of Warwick, U.K. The server is now
running on a dedicated machine, and is now ready for public access.

Three prediction methods are currently implemented:

PSIPRED     - Prediction of protein secondary structure
MEMSAT2     - Prediction of transmembrane protein structure and topology
GenTHREADER - Prediction of protein tertiary structure by fold recognition

Note that at CASP3 (http://predictioncenter.llnl.gov/casp3), PSIPRED was the
most accurate secondary structure prediction method tested, achieving an
overall 3-state accuracy (Q3) of 77% across 24 prediction targets.

The server may be accessed via the following front page:

(Please note that commercial users will need to obtain a software license from
the University of Warwick to access the server)
