CDvist has ben refactored. We will continue to improve the webserver. Please let us know any problems and requests at our BitBucket page or via direct contact.
CDvist is a sequence-based protein domain search tool. It combines several popular algorithms to provide the best possible domain coverage for multi-domain proteins delivering speed-up, accuracy, and batch querying with novel visualization features.
In the world of bioinformatics, combination of several tools often provides a better outcome than any of the tools alone.
The algorithm operates on subsequences rather than the entire sequence to cover domain information as completely as possible. It starts the search with the most specific tool and then fills the remaining gaps using more sensitive tools.
