3.0 (online since June 2013). New in this version:
  • The user can make predictions for all DR, DP and DQ molecules with known protein sequence. Likewise can the user upload full length MHC class II alpha and beta chain and have the server predict MHC restricted peptides from any given protein of interest
2.1 (online since 6 June 2011). New in this version:
  • User can upload full length MHC class II beta chain and have the server predict MHC restricted peptides from any given protein of interest.
2.0 (online since 17 Nov 2010). New in this version:
  • New concurent algorithm used to train the network.
1.1 (online since 15 April 2010). New in this version:
  • %-rank measure include for each prediction value. The %-rank score give the rank of the prediction score to a distribution of prediction scores from 200.000 natural random 15mer peptides.
1.0 Original version (online version until April 15 2010):
