Hydropathy plot detection software tools | Protein sequence data analysis
Hydropathy plots are used to visualize the hydrophobicity of a protein or peptide over its amino acid sequence. The x-axis represents the amino acid sequence while the y-axis represents the degree of hydrophobicity or hydrophilicity. Information on the protein structure can be obtained by analyzing the shape of the plot. Hydropathy plot software tools are used for calculation and representation of the plot.
Gives access to many free software tools for sequence analysis. EMBOSS aims to serve the molecular biology community. It permits the creation and the release of software in an open source spirit. This tool is useful for sequence analysis into a seamless whole. It is free of charge and is available in open source.
Analyzes five properties of effector proteins: total hydropathy, average hydropathy, C-terminal hydropathy, C-terminal load, and basic polar amino acids at the C-terminus. HydroCalc Proteome is a web server that can serve for analysis of hydropathy-related properties to facilitate identification and characterization of potential effector proteins. This software can be useful for screening proteins from the proteome that may be potential effector proteins.
