Protein Structure and Modeling

  • PDB -- The PDB archive contains information about experimentally-determined structures of proteins, nucleic acids, and complex assemblies.

    ProFit  -- ProFit is designed to be the ultimate protein least squares fitting program. It has many features including flexible specification of fitting zones and atoms, calculation of RMS over different zones or atoms, RMS-by-residue calculation, on-line help facility, etc.

    oGNM/oANM-- oGNM calculates the equilibrium dynamics of any structure submitted in PDB format, using the Gaussian Network Model (GNM)1, a network model for representing biomolecules.

    PAIRCOIL  -- The paircoil program predicts the location of coiled-coil regions in amino acid sequences. Current versions are available for SUN, SGI, and DEC compatable machines. A version for LINUX is in production, but not available yet.

    Marcoil  -- Prediction of coiled-coil domains in protein sequences.  Posterior probabilities generated by a Hidden Markov Model

    ClusPro -- ClusPro to attempt to find the native site during protein and protein docking (or binding) under the assumption that it will have a wide free-energy attractor with the largest number of results.

    PyMol -- PyMOL is a molecular viewer, render tool, and 3D molecular editor developed in the spirit of RasMol and OpenRasMol and intended for visualization of 3D chemical structures including atomic resolution X-ray crystal structures of: proteinsnucleic acids (DNARNA, & tRNA), and carbohydrates, as well as small molecule structures of drug leadsinhibitors, metabolites, sugars, nucleoside phosphates, and other ligands including inorganic salts and solvent molecules

Numerical Approach Resources

  • Gfortran -- a GNU Fortran project, developing a free Fortran 95/2003 compiler for GCC, the GNU Compiler Collection -- a stable, production Fortran 95 compiler available for multiple cpu architectures and operating systems -- a high-level plotting library for displaying data as curves, polar plots, bar graphs, pie charts, 3D-color plots, surfaces, contours and maps. -- a collection of mathematical software, papers, and databases
