DSC protein secondary structure prediction API - Comments

The service provides predictions of secondary protein structures by assigning a test sequence to one class of such structures based on statistical measures of probability. This method decomposes the sequence prediction decision into basic elements, then combining those found in a sample to predict the overall secondary structure. This method adjusts for relevance of particular structural patterns to a sample submitted for analysis. API methods support submission of a protein sequence to initiate and analysis job. The API generates a prediction of secondary structures based on probability of combinations found in the submitted sequence, weighted for the varying importance of different elements within the specific analysis.
