antibacTR is designed to help in identifying potential antimicrobial drug targets on Gram-negative bacteria. Please start by selecting the proteomes of interest. Proteins will be ranked according to a set of different criteria listed below. Each criterium has an associated weight factor, which modifies its influence in the final ranking. If a protein is similar to a known drug target or virulence factor, the corresponding link will be shown.

For detailed information please check the available documentation.
