This package is for version 3.17 of Bioconductor; for the stable, up-to-date release version, see procoil.

Prediction of Oligomerization of Coiled Coil Proteins

Bioconductor version: 3.17

The package allows for predicting whether a coiled coil sequence (amino acid sequence plus heptad register) is more likely to form a dimer or more likely to form a trimer. Additionally to the prediction itself, a prediction profile is computed which allows for determining the strengths to which the individual residues are indicative for either class. Prediction profiles can also be visualized as curves or heatmaps.
