HMM-based Protein Structure Prediction, SAM-T02

The SAM-T02 service was moved from the moai cluster to the bmecluster on 30 Jan 2009. Please report any problems to

We only accept chains with < 600 amino acids, to avoid overloading our server. (Increased from previous limit of 500, 2 June 2004.)

Either cut and paste your FASTA-formatted sequence in the box below or upload it from a file on your local system. Remember that the FASTA format requires a ">" symbol as the first character of the first line, with the ID of the sequence immediately following (no spaces). The SAM-T02 server is not as tolerant of sloppy input as some of our other servers. At this time, SAM-T02 will only process one sequence at a time, and the amino acids must all be in upper case.

or specify the sequence-containing file on your system here.
