Rapid Methods for Comparing Protein Structures and Scanning Structure Databases

  title={Rapid Methods for Comparing Protein Structures and Scanning Structure Databases},
  author={Oliviero Carugo},
Databases of three-dimensional macromolecular structures became so large that fast search tools and comparison methods were needed and were actually designed. All of them employ simplified representations of the threedimensional structure: strings of characters of variable length, which can be handled with procedures that were designed for sequence analysis; fixed dimension arrays that can be processed with standard statistical methods; ensembles of secondary structural elements, which are much… CONTINUE READING
