An amino acid index is a set of 20 numerical values representing any of the different physicochemical and biochemical properties of amino acids. As a follow-up to the previous study, we have increased the size of the database, which currently contains 402 published indices, and re-performed the single-linkage cluster analysis. The results basically confirmed the previous findings. Another important feature of amino acids that can be represented numerically is the similarity between them. Thus… CONTINUE READING
