Web-based servers implementing the DAS-TMfilter algorithm have been launched at three mirror sites and their usage is described. The underlying computer program is an upgraded and modified version of the DAS-prediction method. The new server is (approximately 1 among 100 unrelated queries) while the high efficiency of the original algorithm locating TM segments in queries is preserved (sensitivity of approximately 95% among documented proteins with helical TM regions).


The server operates at three mirror sites:, and The program is available on request.
