※ The related web services for midbody, centrosome, kinetochore, telomere and spindle

1. Centrosome:db: the database a set of human and fly genes encoding proteins that are localized in the centrosome, either as centrosome constituents or as centrosome visitors.

2. MicekiPred: the predictor of midbody, centrosome and kinetochore proteins using gene ontology.

※ The products of the CUCKOO Workgroup

1. Prediction of phosphorylation sites.

(1) GPS 2.1 (Group-based Prediction System): One of our recent projects. We improved our previous GPS (Group-based Phosphorylation scoring) algorithm and released GPS 2.0 & GPS 2.1 algorithm. The GPS 2.0 (Group-based Prediction System, ver 2.0) software was implemented in JAVA and could predict kinase-specific phosphorylation sites for 408 human PKs in hierarchy. Recently, we released GPS 2.1 with a novel Peptide Selection method to improve the prediction performance and robustness greatly.

(2) GPS 1.1 (Group-based Phosphorylation scoring): In 2004 & 2005, we designed a novel algorithm GPS and construct an easy-to-use web server for the experimentalists. GPS 1.1 could predict kinase-specific phosphorylation sites for 71 PK groups with 216 unique PKs

(3) PPSP 1.0 (Prediction of PK-Specific Phosphorylation site): The software was implemented in Bayesian Decision Theory (BDT) algorithm. The prediction performance is comparable with GPS 1.1.

2. Prediction of SUMO substrates & sumoylation sites.

(1) SUMOps 2.0 (SUMOylation sites prediction): One of our recent projects. An enhanced software for prediction of sumoylation site, with GPS 2.0 algorithm.

7. Miscellaneous tools.

(1) DOG 1.0 (Domain Graph): It could be used to prepare publication-quality figures of protein domain structures. The scale of a protein domain and the position of a functional motif/site will be precisely calculated.
