About

This website was developed by Sarwar Islam as part of his PhD at the University of Leicester along with his supervisors Prof. Paul Lambert and Dr. Mark Rutherford in collaboration with Prof. Paul Dickman (Karolinska Institutet).


On navigation of the site, users will find a section dedicated to the tool, InterPreT, and a section which focuses on more technical details such as, statistical background on the methods used, scientific definitions, and an in-depth explanation on the process behind the obtained predictions and data collected.

Who are we?
