Method Detail

predict

TmDomain_Annotation predict(BiologicalSequence seq)
                            throws WrapperFailed
Predict the trans-membrane domain of a protein sequence.

Throws:
WrapperFailed

predict

TmDomain_Annotation[] predict(BiologicalSequence[] seq)
                              throws WrapperFailed
Predict the trans-membrane domains of a set of protein sequences.

Throws:
WrapperFailed

getReferenceURL

java.lang.String getReferenceURL()
Return an URL which describe the method, its availability, etc.


getDescription

java.lang.String getDescription()
Return a string which describes the method, its availability, etc. The description can contain the literature reference, author names, short explanation of how the method works, etc.


useWebAccess

boolean useWebAccess()
Return whether this predictor uses an HTTP connection to the prediction web service.

Returns:
true if the predictor connects to a web service through the web, false otherwise (in this case the tool must be installed locally).
