We use the prediction results from the following prediction servers to build up our meta prediction method:
We thank the authors of DISIS, DNABindR, BindN, BindN-rf, DP-Bind and DBS-PRED for making their tools available. If you have your own tool for identification of DNA-binding sites and would like to be included into our metaDBSite approach, please send us an e-mail and we will be very happy about that.
Benchmark dataset: the PDNA-316 dataset used in the metaDBSite manuscript is redundant.
Now we clean up the redundancy in it and the new non-redundant data-set is called PDNA-232 and can be downloaded here. We apologize for this redundancy. Please refer to the new PDNA-232 data-set for your purpose.
