Welcome to TumorHPD
Tumor homing peptides are the short peptides having average length between 7 to 12 residues. These peptides have ability to recognize and bind to tumor cells or tissues. These peptides can be used to deliver target specific drugs and as imaging agents for therapeutics and diagnostics. Thus prediction of tumor homing peptide is important for managing cancer treatment effectively.
TumorHPD is a web server for predicting and designing tumor homing peptides. This server is extremely useful for the researchers working in the field of therapeutic peptides. This server allows the users to design tumor homing peptides and their mutants having better tumor homing and physicochemical properties.
