the very first comprehensive computational platform entirely dedicated to Cys investigation, from analysis of reactivity to prediction of function.
CPIPE investigates reactivity and predicts possible functional roles of protein Cysteine residues.


Cpipe traces back its roots in the work of Dr. Stefano M. Marino, first as a postdoc with Prof. Vadim N. Gladyshev (Harvard Medical School, Boston, USA) and then during his years as Assistant Professor of Bioinformatics at Akdeniz University (Antalya, Turkey).
In 2014 Inanc Soylu, joined Dr. Marino's group as a graduate student to work specifically on a project for an automated, comprehensive pipeline for Cysteine analysis.
In 2015, Dr. Marino joined Explora Biotech (Venice, Italy), as a senior scientist and developed Cpipe web service in collaboration with Dr. Soylu partially funded by the NEXT by the NEXT project (Grant Agreement no HEALTH.2013.1.3-2-602235). CPIPE is currently run and managed by Akdeniz University.
