BOMP: beta-barrel Outer Membrane protein Predictor

BOMP is a tool for prediction of beta-barrel integral outer membrane proteins. The user may submit a list of proteins, and receive a list of predicted BOMPs. The program, called the beta-barrel Outer Membrane protein Predictor (BOMP), is based on two separate components to recognize integral beta-barrel proteins. The first component is a C-terminal pattern typical of many integral beta-barrel proteins. The second component calculates an integral beta-barrel score of the sequence based on the extent to which the sequence contains stretches of amino acids typical of transmembrane -strands. To use the BOMP tool simply paste your fasta-formatted sequences into the text area, or choose a file which contains sequences. Then hit the submit button. It is possible to perform a BLAST search parallel with the predictions, which may be suitable in some cases. Using the BLAST search will however increase the running time substantially.
