Bioinformatics tools and resources for analyzing protein structures Chapter uri icon

Book Title

  • Proteome Bioinformatics


  • The dramatic increase in the number of protein sequences and structures deposited in biological databases has led to the development of many bioinformatics tools and programs to manage, validate, compare, and interpret this large volume of data. In addition, powerful tools are being developed to use this sequence and structural data to facilitate protein classification and infer biological function of newly identified proteins. This chapter covers freely available bioinformatics resources on the World Wide Web that are commonly used for protein structure analysis.
