#PhosphoRice PhosphoRice,a meta-predictor of rice-specific phosphorylation site, was constructed by integrating the newly phosphorylation sites predictors, NetPhos2.0, NetPhosK, Kinasephos, Scansite, Disphos and Predphosphos with parameters selected by restricted grid search and random search. It archieve an increase in MCC of 7.1%, and an increase in ACC of 4.6% than that of the best element predictor (Disphos_default), respectively.


  • 10/30/2014:v1.1.2 disphos time out.
  • 10/28/2014:v1.1.1 check if result of one tool is empty.
  • 04/05/2014:v1.1.0 Add the Scansite.

##Get Started ###Requires


git clone git@github.com:PEHGP/PhosphoRice.git

if you don't install git.You can download PhosphoRice here. ###How to use

python PhosphoRice.py <InputFile> <OutputFile>

###Input File The input file must be a protein sequence and format in FASTA.
A FASTA sequence seems like below:


Attention:Disphos can't update files now. So our programs only predict a sequence at a time. ###Output File The firs line is sequence name.The result from the second line.
The output file seems like below:

10	6	S  
23	12	T
45	7	Y
  • The first column is the amino acid position.
  • The second column is the score.The higher the score is, the more possible the position is a phosphorylation site.
  • The third column is the phosphorylation amino acid.

Attention:Our programs rely on the third party web tools.If the third party web tools can't be used,our programs can not predict results. ##How to cite Que S, Li K, Chen M, et al. PhosphoRice: a meta-predictor of rice-specific phosphorylation sites[J]. Plant methods, 2012, 8(1): 1-9.
