Rapid protein-structure determination relies greatly on software that can automatically build a protein model into an experimental electron-density map. In favorable circumstances, various software systems are capable of building over 90% of the final model. However, completeness falls off rapidly with the resolution of the diffraction data. Manual completion of these partial models is usually feasible, but is time-consuming and prone to subjective interpretation. Except for the N- and C… Expand

On the structure of the inverse kinematics map of a fragment of protein backbone
TLDR
The first part of this paper analyzes the global structure of the IK map for a fragment of protein backbone with 6 torsional dofs for a slightly idealized kinematic model, called the canonical model, and describes an efficient recursive algorithm to sample IK solutions for such fragments, by identifying the feasible range of each successive torsial dof.

Modeling Structural Heterogeneity in Proteins from X-Ray Data
TLDR
A sample-select approach to model structural heterogeneity by computing an ensemble of conformations (along with occupancies) that, collectively, provide a near-optimal explanation of the edm is presented, mainly loops and side-chains. Expand
Protein loop closure using orientational restraints from NMR data
TLDR
A novel, sparse data, RDC‐based algorithm is presented, which exploits the mathematical interplay between R DC‐derived sphero‐conics and protein kinematics, and formulates the loop structure determination problem as a system of low‐degree polynomial equations that can be solved exactly, in closed‐form.

Protein Loop Closure Using Orientational Restraints from NMR Data
TLDR
This paper presents a novel algorithm that determines the protein loop conformations using a minimal amount of residual dipolar coupling (RDC) data, and formulates the loop structure determination problem as a system of low-degree polynomial equations that can be solved exactly and in closed form.

Cyclic coordinate descent: A robotics algorithm for protein loop closure
TLDR
An algorithm developed originally for inverse kinematics applications in robotics, referred to as cyclic coordinate descent or CCD, involves adjusting one dihedral angle at a time to minimize the sum of the squared distances between three backbone atoms of the moving C‐terminal anchor and the corresponding atoms in the fixed C‐ terminal anchor.

The novel method to generate ensembles of conformations of the main‐chain atoms for a sequence of amino acids within the context of a fixed protein framework concludes that quality of anchor geometry cannot reliably identify near‐native conformations, though the selection results are comparable to previous loop prediction methods.

PDB-based protein loop prediction: parameters for selection and methods for optimization.
TLDR
The prediction of antibody loops from a database search is more effective than that for non-antibody loops and superposition of the stem residues for antibody loops results in a better orientation than with arbitrary target loops because the neighboring residues tend to have a more similar beta-strand structure.
