Brief description:
MHCPEP is a curated database comprising over 4000 peptide sequences known to
bind MHC molecules. Entries are compiled from published reports as well as
from direct submissions of experimental data. Each entry contains the source   
protein (when known), an estimate of binding affinity and critical anchor
residues (if identified), and is fully referenced. The present format of the
database allows text string matching searches. The database can be accessed 
via Internet using gopher.
