About metaPocket 2.0

MetaPocket 2.0 is a meta server to identify ligand binding sites on protein surface! metaPocket is a consensus method, in which the predicted binding sites from eight methods: LIGSITEcs, PASS, Q-SiteFinder, SURFNET, Fpocket, GHECOM, ConCavity and POCASA are combined together to improve the prediction success rate.

The first version of metapocket (metapocket 1.0, URL: http://metapocket.eml.org ) was developed at Heidelberg Insititute for Theoretical Studies (link) (formerly EML Research gGmbH). Then it is continuely developed at Techincal University of Dresden and Zhejiang University jointly.

MetaPocket 2.0 is both maintained at two web-sites:
