COILS/PCOILS

 
This server compares a single sequence (COILS) or a sequence alignment (PCOILS) to a database of known coiled-coils and derives a similarity score. The program then calculates the probability that the sequence will adopt a coiled-coil conformation. The external COILS server at ISREC can be found here.
