About AntiBP2

Antibacterial peptides are important components of innate immune system, used by the host to protect itself from different types of pathogenic bacteria. Antimicrobial peptides have broad spectrum of activity against bacteria, fungai, viruses and even cancer cells.

AntiBP2 server predicts the antibacterial peptides in a protein sequence. Prediction can be done by using Support Vector Machine (SVM) based method using coposition of peptide sequences and overall accuracy of this server is ~92.14%. This server can also predict the source of these antibacterial peptides with ~98.52% accuracy. If the source of these antibacterial peptides are insect, frog or mammal then it gives the information of its family also. This server can help in finding and designing of peptides based antibiotics.
