Major Features
  • QSPpred is the first server for predicting and designing of Quorum sensing peptides

  • Developed using experimentally proven Quorum sensing peptides

  • Highly user friendly web interface to help researchers

  • It contains peptide prediction programs:
    QSPepPred for predicting Quorum sensing peptides
    QSPepDesign for predicting Quorum sensing peptides and their possible mutants
    QSPepMap for mapping Quorum sensing peptides on protein sequence

  • Useful tools also integrated in web server:
    QSMotif Scan for scanning motif in input sequence
    MutGen for generating customized mutations
    PhysicoProp for graphical representation of some important physico properties of peptide
    ProtFrag for generating fragment of input protein sequence in peptide of desirable length

  • It will accelerate the pace of identification of Quorum sensing peptides used in microbial communication, biofilm formation, virulence etc

  • Predicted Quorum sensing peptides may serve as novel therapeutic targets
