UNLABELLED Plant-derived molecules (PDMs) are known to be a rich source of diverse scaffolds that could serve as the basis for rational drug design. Structured compilation of phytochemicals from traditional medicinal plants can facilitate prospection for novel PDMs and their analogs as therapeutic agents. Atropa belladonna, Catharanthus roseus, Heliotropium(More)
The functionality of a gene or a protein depends on codon repeats occurring in it. As a consequence of their vitality in protein function and apparent involvement in causing diseases, an interest in these repeats has developed in recent years. The analysis of genomic and proteomic sequences to identify such repeats requires some algorithmic support from(More)
Protein Data Bank (PDB) is a freely accessible archive of the 3-D structural data of biological molecules. Structure based studies offers a unique vantage point in inferring the properties of a protein molecule from structural data. This is too big a task to be done manually. Moreover, there is no single tool, software or server that comprehensively(More)
BACKGROUND Plant-derived molecules (PDMs) are known to be a rich source of diverse scaffolds that could serve as a basis for rational drug design. Structured compilation of phytochemicals from traditional medicinal plants can facilitate prospection for novel PDMs and their analogs as therapeutic agents. Rauvolfia serpentina is an important medicinal plant,(More)
Proteins are large biomolecules comprising of α – L amino acids connected by peptide bonds. They fold into a three dimensional structure to become functionally significant. Most of the information related to protein folding is embedded within the primary peptide sequence itself. With the advent of structural genomics, prediction of biological function from(More)
