Positional Epitope Coverage Assessment Tool - Posicover

Purpose: This tool will calculate the proportion of all epitope-length peptides in a set of aligned viral or antigen protein sequences that are 'covered' (i.e., matched) by a peptide in each viral or antigen protein cocktail. Results are expressed as epitope-coverage over the position of test sequences.

Usage: Paste your protein sequences in the boxes below, or use the browse button to select files on your computer that contain sequence(s) to upload. Most common sequence formats are accepted. Toggle peptides are allowed in antigen protein or peptide cocktail.
