Bacterial lipoproteins have many important functions owing to their essential nature and roles in pathogenesis and represent a class of possible vaccine candidates. The prediction of bacterial lipoproteins from sequence is thus an important task for computational vaccinology. A Support Vector Machines (SVM) based module for predicting bacterial lipoproteins, LIPOPREDICT, has been developed. The best performing sequence model were generated using selected dipeptide composition, which gave 97%
