Assists in predicting intrinsically disordered region in proteins. Spritz is based on two separate support vector machines (SVM), one specialized in recognizing long disordered regions, and one for short disordered regions. These classifiers are derived from independent datasets. The web server has two interfaces, one for single and one for multiple queries.
