Structural genomics projects aim to provide an experimental or computational three-dimensional model structure for all of the tractable macromolecules that are encoded by complete genomes. To this end, pilot centres worldwide are now exploring the feasibility of large-scale structure determination. Their experimental structures and computational models are expected to yield insight into the molecular function and mechanism of thousands of proteins. The pervasiveness of this information is… Expand

  • 2002
TLDR
This work has shown that knowledge of an increasingly complete repertoire of protein structures will aid structure prediction methods, improve understanding of protein structure, and ultimately lend insight into molecular interactions and pathways. Expand
Computational Structural Genomics of a Complete Minimal Organism
TLDR
Structural genomics aims to provide an experimental structure or computational model of every tractable protein in a complete genome, and is expected to yield important insight into the minimal set of genes necessary for life. Expand
Understanding the cell in terms of structure and function: insights from structural genomics.
  • D. Rigden
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Current opinion in biotechnology
  • 2006
TLDR
Attention is now turning to means of combining these predictions with information from various other sources for structure-based function annotation for the many target proteins about which little or nothing is known. Expand
Progress of structural genomics initiatives: an analysis of solved target structures.
TLDR
A comprehensive analysis of solved SG targets appears that structural genomics is on track to be a success, and it is hoped that this work will inform future directions of the field. Expand
The interplay of fold recognition and experimental structure determination in structural genomics.
TLDR
The quality of the tools used for fold recognition defines the scope of experimental effort - the more distant the templates that can be recognized, the smaller the number of proteins that have to be solved. Expand
Understanding the molecular machinery of genetics through 3D structures
TLDR
How changes in protein sequence affect the corresponding 3D structure is considered, and how structural information about proteins, DNA and chromatin has shed light on gene regulatory mechanisms and the storage and transmission of epigenetic information is described. Expand
Focusing in on structural genomics: the University of Queensland structural biology pipeline.
TLDR
The structures from this pipeline will provide insights into the function of previously uncharacterized macrophage proteins and could lead to the validation of new drug targets for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and arthritis. Expand
Automatic target selection for structural genomics on eukaryotes
TLDR
The results suggested that it might be necessary to determine >40,000 structures to minimally cover the subset of five eukaryotic proteomes, and it was suggested that all members of one family share a common foldlike region. Expand
Exploiting protein structure data to explore the evolution of protein function and biological complexity
TLDR
Structural analyses of metabolic families provide some insights into the mechanisms of functional innovation, which include changes in domain partnerships and significant structural embellishments leading to modulation of active sites and protein interactions. Expand
Challenges of structural genomics: bioinformatics
TLDR
Projects at the San Diego based Joint Center for Structural Genomics provide an example of how data can be managed within a structural genomics project, and how results can be presented on the web, as well as highlight some of the issues concerning data analysis. Expand

  • 2000
TLDR
It is expected that only about a quarter of the early structural genomics targets will have a new fold, and among the remaining ones, about half are likely to be evolutionarily related to proteins of known structure, even though the homology could not be readily detected by sequence analysis.

100,000 protein structures for the biologist
  • A. Sali
  • Biology, Medicine

TLDR
Structural genomics promises to deliver experimentally determined three-dimensional structures for many thousands of protein domains so that the methods of fold assignment and comparative protein structure modeling will result in useful models for most other protein sequences. Expand
Structural genomics and its importance for gene function analysis
TLDR
This work has shown that assignment of a protein's biochemical function can be achieved by scanning its structure for a match to the geometry and chemical identity of a known active site and can use low-resolution structures provided by contemporary structure prediction methods. Expand
An integrated approach to structural genomics.

TLDR
This review focuses on current approaches in structural genomics aimed at selecting representative proteins as targets for structure determination, the concept of representative structures/folds, the current methodologies for identifying those proteins, and computational techniques for identifying proteins which are expected to adopt new structural folds.

Structural genomics projects in Japan.
TLDR
Two major structural genomics projects exist in Japan and each has two major goals: to determine bacterial, mammalian, and plant protein structures by X-ray crystallography and NMR spectroscopy and to perform functional analyses with the target proteins. Expand

TLDR
The shapes of most protein sequences will be modeled based on their similarity to experimentally determined protein structures, and the current role, limitations, challenges and prospects for protein structure modeling are discussed in the context of structural genomics. Expand
