is a fully automated protein structure homology-modelling server, accessible via the Expasy web server.

The purpose of this server is to make protein modelling accessible to all life science researchers worldwide.


Every week we model all the sequences for thirteen core species based on the latest UniProtKB proteome. Is your protein already modelled and up to date in SWISS-MODEL Repository?

What's new

The Structure Assessment web server has been published in the 2024 Nucleic Acids Research Web Server issue


AlphaFoldDB structures are available as templates in the SWISS-MODEL homology modelling pipeline.


We have added a simple way to annotate the results of your modelling or structure assessment projects.
