UniqueProt is a practical and easy to use web service designed to create representative, unbiased data sets of protein sequences. The largest possible representative sets are found through a simple greedy algorithm using the HSSP-value to establish sequence similarity. UniqueProt is not a real clustering program in the sense that the 'representatives' are not at the centres of well-defined clusters since the definition of such clusters is problem-specific. Overall, UniqueProt is a reasonable… CONTINUE READING
