You are here: Home > Annotate

Annotate your proteins (must be FASTA format !!!) by searching against dbCAN HMMs using HMMER3 (hmmscan)

Note: 1. We strongly encourage the users leave your email address if submitting too many sequences, e.g. an entire genome; the result page will be emailed to you when the job is done.
           2. If using result of this server for publicaton, please cite: Nucleic Acids Res. 2012 Jul;40(Web Server issue):W445-51
           3. If you have DNA/mRNA sequence reads, you should translate them into protein sequence in 6 frames (e.g. using transeq command of the EMBOSS package), and then submit the protein sequences.
           4. dbCAN HMMs 6.0 released (added CAZy subfamily HMMs, based on CAZyDB 07/20/2017), see read.txt for details; the BLAST database was also updated [new]
           5. If you have short peptides from proteomics, please use the BLAST tool to annotate your peptides for CAZymes. HMMER3 is not a good choice for short peptides.
           6. dbCAN2 web server is released at Northern Illinois University; it allows DNA seq submission and integrates three state-of-the-art tools/databases for automated CAZyme annotation and also allows prediction of CAZyme gene clusters for your query genome! [new]
