SECISDesign - Insert SECIS in mRNA

SECISDesign is a server for the design of SECIS-elements within the coding sequence of an mRNA with both structure and sequence constraints. This will trigger the insertion of a selenocystein at a preceding STOP codon. Furthermore, a certain similarity to the original protein sequence is kept. It can be used e.g. for recombinant expression of selenoproteins in E.coli.

Note: SECISDesign is not maintained anymore.
