I-TASSER (Iterative Threading ASSEmbly Refinement) is a hierarchical approach to protein structure and function prediction. Structural templates are first identified from the PDB by multiple threading approach LOMETS; full-length atomic models are then constructed by iterative template fragment assembly simulations. Finally, function inslights of the target are derived by threading the 3D models through protein function database BioLiP. I-TASSER (as 'Zhang-Server') was ranked as the No 1 server for protein structure prediction in recent community-wide CASP7, CASP8, CASP9, CASP10, and CASP11 experiments. It was also ranked as the best for function prediction in CASP9. The server is in active development with the goal to provide the most accurate structural and function predictions using state-of-the-art algorithms. The server is only for non-commercial use. Please report problems and questions at I-TASSER message board and our members will study and answer the questions asap. (>> More about the server ...)
