A Short History of the PSIPRED Server

The original PSIPRED server was developed by David Jones at the University of Warwick in 1998.

In early 2000 the server was tranferred to Brunel University in West London.

In late 2001 the server was transferred to University College London, where it has been running continuously ever since.

The PSIPRED server code and the underlying methods were developed by David Jones. Liam McGuffin (now at the University of Reading) contributed Java code for the regular fold library updates and the graphical display of secondary structure predictions. Liam also worked on method benchmarking and was responsible (along with Kevin Bryson) for the current Web page design.

Kevin Bryson is now the main curator of the site with contributions from David Jones and others in the group.
