COMER web server for protein analysis by homology

  1. Enter your sequence, MSA, and/or profile queries below (use the line "//" to separate individual queries). (?)

    A query can represent a sequence, plain or in FASTA format, an MSA in aligned FASTA, STOCKHOLM, or A3M format, or a COMER2 profile (max 5 MB).

  2. Select target databases.
  3. Tune sequence search options to build informative MSAs for the queries.
  4. Click "Submit".
(?)

Upload queries as an input text file (max 50 MB).

(?)

When the input is a set of sequences in FASTA or aligned FASTA format, instruct the server to consider each sequence (gaps ignored) as a separate single sequence query (as if they were separated by "//").

(?)

Use the COTHER method to search profile database(s) selected below with the input queries.

(?)

Select one or more profile databases to search using COMER2 (multiple selection: Ctrl key + Mouse's left-click).

(?)

Select one or more profile databases to search using COTHER (multiple selection: Ctrl key + Mouse's left-click).

(?)

Specify a statistical significance threshold. Hits with an E-value greater than this value will not be displayed. (Possible real values: [0,100]).

(?)

Specify a maximum number of hits to display on output (max 2000).

(?)

Optionally, provide an e-mail address which will then be used to send a notification upon job completion.

(?)

Optionally, provide a custom job description.

(?)

Perform additional sequence search with the sequence and MSA queries using HHblits to build informative MSAs.

(?)

Select an HHsuite database to search using HHblits.

(?)

Specify a number of HHblits iterations (max 4).

(?)

Specify a statistical significance threshold for matches found by HHblits. Sequences identified with an E-value greater than this value will be ignored. (Possible real values: [0,1]).

(?)

Perform additional sequence search with the sequence and MSA queries using HMMER to build informative MSAs (can be used along with HHblits).

(?)

Select a sequence database to search using HMMER.

(?)

Specify a number of HMMER iterations (max 4).

(?)

Specify a statistical significance threshold for matches found by HMMER. Sequences identified with an E-value greater than this value will be ignored. (Possible real values: [0,1]).

(?)

Apply low-complexity region filtering to the sequences of a final MSA from which a COMER2/COTHER profile is constructed. Profile construction can fail if all sequences in an MSA are low-complexity sequences.

(?)

Specify a weight for the scoring term from Bayesian modeling of substitution probabilities. (Possible real values: (0,1)).

(?)

Specify a weight for the term for scoring normally distributed context vectors. (Possible real values: [0,1)).

(?)

Specify a weight for the term for scoring the similarity of secondary structures. 0 disables secondary structure scoring. (Possible real values: [0,1)).

(?)

Specify a method for estimating the statistical significance of profile-profile alignments. 0, Statistical significance depends on alignment score and profile lengths; 1, Statistical significance depends on alignment score, profile attributes, and compositional similarity; 2, Same as model 1 but regards the amount of data used in simulations.

(?)

Realign profile-profile alignments by a maximum a posteriori algorithm.

(?)

Specify a posterior probability threshold for expected alignment accuracy of realigned pair of profiles. Alignment extension stops when the expected alignment accuracy drops below this value. 0 implies semi-global alignment. Threshold values tending to 1 shorten alignments. (Possible real values: [0,1)).

(?)

Specify a weight for scoring inter-residue distance distribution match. Higher values emphasize the similarity of structural features, i.e., distance map similarity. (Possible real values: [0,1))
