The Biomolecular Modelling Laboratory,
Imperial Cancer Research Fund, London
announces a new sequence database searching service:
SAWTED - Structure Assignment With Text Description
SAWTED stands for Structure Assignment With Text
Description. It is a method to improve the coverage of the
detection of remote homologues of known structure by
sequence searches (e.g. PSI-BLAST) and fold recognition
SAWTED automates the process of comparing functional
information for the query and poor scoring database hits.
It uses a text comparison algorithm and SWISS-PROT
annotations, and has been fully benchmarked. A paper
is currently under review for publication.
