Predicts bioluminescent proteins which uses a model based on auto covariance and position specific scoring matrix. BLPre includes prediction features which allow users to discover many still unknown functions and design new commercial and medical applications. This tool runs with Position Specific Iterated BLAST (PSI-BLAST) program which permits to obtain sequential evolution information in the form of position specific scoring matrix (PSSM) generated from the inquired sequences. Then, the PSSM is transformed into a fixed-length feature vector by auto covariance (AC) transformation.
