Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are promising alternative antimicrobial agents. Currently, however, portable, user-friendly, and efficient methods for predicting AMP sequences from genome-scale data are not readily available. Here we present amPEPpy, an open-source, multi-threaded command-line application for predicting AMP sequences using a random forest classifier.
