Protein Parameters

Welcome to the Protein Parameters web app for analysing protein sequences. The program performs most of the same functions as the Expasy ProtParam tool, but also allows you to enter a DNA sequence for translation. You can also enter your protein OD280nm once your Protein Parameters have been determined to instantly calculate your protein concentration. Simply select the sequence type (DNA or Protein), enter your sequence and click "Submit".



Use single letter code for proteins



You can successively enter multiple OD values if required.
