How to find epitopes. start.

Enter the query sequence in the box below. Click "Get Profile".

When B-cell linear epitopes are selected, the sequence is passed straight to the consensus tool. For MHC predictions, the system will convert the protein sequence into a series of overlapping peptides (15 amino acids long for MHC II and 9 amino acids long for MHC I). These peptides will then be assessed for their potential to bind available MHC allotypes, and the results presented.

Please note that this tools requires your sequence to be sent over the internet to the IEDB servers when MHC predictions are selected. Sequence length is limited to 200 amino acids - If you need something else please get in touch.
