Proteins containing tandem repeats (TRs) are abundant, frequently fold in elongated non-globular structures and perform vital functions. A number of computational tools have been developed to detect TRs in protein sequences. A blurred boundary between imperfect TR motifs and non-repetitive sequences gave rise to necessity to validate the detected TRs. Tally-2.0 is a scoring tool based on a machine learning (ML) approach, which allows to validate the results of TR detection. It was upgraded by using improved training datasets and additional ML features. Tally-2.0 performs at a level of 93% sensitivity, 83% specificity and an area under the receiver operating characteristic curve of 95%. Tally-2.0 is available, as a web tool and as a standalone application published under Apache License 2.0, on the URL route=tools&tool=27. It is supported on Linux.
