To adequately deal with the inherent complexity of interactions between protein side-chains, we develop and describe here a novel method for characterizing protein packing within a fold family. Instead of approaching side-chain interactions absolutely from one residue to another, we instead consider the relative interactions of contacting residue pairs. The… CONTINUE READING
