CAMPSign is a tool for identification of antimicrobial peptides belonging to one of the 45 major AMP families present in CAMPR3. The peptides are identified based on family signatures such as patterns and HMMs generated for experimentally known AMPs. Users can submit sequences for screening the presence of these AMP signatures. Users can further BLAST the sequence/s of interest to find homologous sequences in popular AMP databases such as CAMP, APD, AVPdb, BACTIBASE etc.

This work has been funded by grants from Department of Science & Technology, India and Indian Council of Medical Research.
