COPRED: prediction of fold, GO molecular function and functional residues at the domain level

Bioinformatics. 2013 Jul 15;29(14):1811-2. doi: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btt283. Epub 2013 May 29.


Summary: Only recently the first resources devoted to the functional annotation of proteins at the domain level started to appear. The next step is to develop specific methodologies for predicting function at the domain level based on these resources, and to implement them in web servers to be used by the community. In this work, we present COPRED, a web server for the concomitant prediction of fold, molecular function and functional sites at the domain level, based on a methodology for domain molecular function prediction and a resource of domain functional annotations previously developed and benchmarked.

Availability and implementation: COPRED can be freely accessed at The interface works in all standard web browsers. WebGL (natively supported by most browsers) is required for the in-line preview and manipulation of protein 3D structures. The website includes a detailed help section and usage examples.
