In past number of methods have been developed to predict antimicrobial or antibacterial activity of a peptide. But an common antibectreial peptide will also have bactericidal activity against Mycobacterium, is not so sure. Our analysis reveals amino acid compositional differences as well as prefernce of certain specific residues in anti-tubercular peptides than common antibacterial and non-antibactreial peptides.
This webserver is designed to predict peptides having effective bactreicidal activity against Mycobacteruium species. These peptides are commonly known as antitubercular or antimycobacterial peptides.
