The Surface Probability (Emini) track predicts the probability that a given region lies on the surface of a protein, using the approach of Emini et al., 1985.

To apply this track to the sequence:

In the Tracks panel, check the box next to Surface Probability (Emini). The track will now be visible in the Analysis view

To edit track options:

Select the track in the Tracks panel. Open the Track Options section, which appears as follows:

  • Surface decision threshold (0..6) – the value (between 0 and 6) that determines whether or not a given hexapeptide is considered to be on the surface or not. The default used by Emini is 1. Higher values will predict fewer surface residues and lower values will predict more.
