ProBias -- a web-server for the identification of user-specified types of compositionally biased segments in protein sequences

What you can do:
A web-server that searches a protein sequence for CBS composed of user-specified amino acid types.
  • ProBias utilizes the discrete scan statistics to estimate statistical significance of CBS and is able to detect even subtle local deviations from the random independence model.
  • The web-server also analyzes the global compositional bias of the input sequence.
  • In the case of novel proteins that lack functional annotation, statistically significant CBS reported by ProBias can be used to guide the search for potential functionally important sites or domains.
  • compositionally biased segments
  • CBS
  • amino acid overrepresentation
