We introduce BAR-PLUS (BAR(+)), a web server for functional and structural annotation of protein sequences. BAR(+) is based on a large-scale genome cross comparison and a non-hierarchical clustering procedure characterized by a metric that ensures a reliable transfer of features within clusters. In this version, the method takes advantage of a large-scale pairwise sequence comparison of 13,495,736 protein chains also including 988 complete proteomes. Available sequence annotation is derived from UniProtKB, GO, Pfam and PDB. When PDB templates are present within a cluster (with or without their SCOP classification), profile Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) are computed on the basis of sequence to structure alignment and are cluster-associated (Cluster-HMM). Therefrom, a library of 10,858 HMMs is made available for aligning even distantly related sequences for structural modelling. The server also provides pairwise query sequence-structural target alignments computed from the correspondent Cluster-HMM. BAR(+) in its present version allows three main categories of annotation: PDB [with or without SCOP(*)] and GO and/or Pfam; PDB (*) without GO and/or Pfam; GO and/or Pfam without PDB (*) and no annotation. Each category can further comprise clusters where GO and Pfam functional annotations are or are not statistically significant. BAR(+) is available at http://bar.biocomp.unibo.it/bar2.0.

Abstract

We introduce BAR-PLUS (BAR(+)), a web server for functional and structural annotation of protein sequences. BAR(+) is based on a large-scale genome cross comparison and a non-hierarchical clustering procedure characterized by a metric that ensures a reliable transfer of features within clusters. In this version, the method takes advantage of a large-scale pairwise sequence comparison of 13,495,736 protein chains also including 988 complete proteomes. Available sequence annotation is derived from UniProtKB, GO, Pfam and PDB. When PDB templates are present within a cluster (with or without their SCOP classification), profile Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) are computed on the basis of sequence to structure alignment and are cluster-associated (Cluster-HMM). Therefrom, a library of 10,858 HMMs is made available for aligning even distantly related sequences for structural modelling. The server also provides pairwise query sequence-structural target alignments computed from the correspondent Cluster-HMM. BAR(+) in its present version allows three main categories of annotation: PDB [with or without SCOP(*)] and GO and/or Pfam; PDB (*) without GO and/or Pfam; GO and/or Pfam without PDB (*) and no annotation. Each category can further comprise clusters where GO and Pfam functional annotations are or are not statistically significant. BAR(+) is available at http://bar.biocomp.unibo.it/bar2.0.
