SWISS-MODEL | Terms of Use


The SWISS-MODEL generates theoretical models by automated homology modelling techniques. The result of any theoretical modelling procedure is NON-EXPERIMENTAL and MUST be considered with care. These models may contain significant errors. This is especially true for automated modelling since there is no human intervention during model building.
Please read the header section and the logfile carefully to know what templates and alignments were used during the model building process. All information in the SWISS-MODEL Repository is provided "AS-IS", without any warranty, expressed or implied.


SWISS-MODEL is developed by the Computational Structural Biology Group at Swiss Institute of Bioinformatics at the Biozentrum, University of Basel. Models produced by SWISS-MODEL Workspace or obtained from SWISS-MODEL Repository are copyright. There are no restrictions on the use of single entries by academic researchers for non-commercial purposes. Downloading the entire database or substantial portions of the database, systematic or automatic downloading of data, mirroring the server, activities that may impact the stable operation of the service or any commercial redistribution of the data obtained from SWISS-MODEL is prohibited. For programmatic access to the SWISS-MODEL Repository, please refer to the documentation for how to link and programmatically access SWISS-MODEL Repository.
