is a fully automated protein structure homology-modelling server, accessible via the Expasy web server, or from the program DeepView (Swiss Pdb-Viewer).

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?


Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2, is a positive-sense, single-stranded RNA coronavirus. It is a contagious virus that causes coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

We modelled the full SARS-CoV-2 proteome based on the NCBI reference sequence NC_045512 and annotations from UniProt.

The results are available here.

Variant of Concern 202012/01

We annotated the mutations of the newly emerging Variant of Concern that appeared in December 2020 in the UK. This annotation project shows the location of the mutations on the wild type proteins.

What's new

We integrated the identification of transmembrane proteins for templates and transfer that information to models.
