A fully automatic evolutionary classification of protein folds -- Dali Domain Dictionary version 3

What you can do:
Search information on numerical taxonomy of all known structures in the Protein Data Bank (PDB).
Highlights:
  • The taxonomy is derived fully automatically from measurements of structural, functional and sequence similarities.
  • The classification is extended to match the traditional four hierarchical levels corresponding to: (i) supersecondary structural motifs (attractors in fold space), (ii) the topology of globular domains (fold types), (iii) remote homologues (functional families) and (iv) homologues with sequence identity above 25% (sequence families).
  • The resulting database contains the description of protein domain architecture, the definition of structural neighbours around each known structure, the definition of structurally conserved cores and a comprehensive library of explicit multiple alignments of distantly related protein families.
