I am glad to announce the availability of our SuMo server:
SuMo is a system for extracting structural and possibly functional
similarities in 3D structures of proteins.
Through the web interface, you can easily:
- screen a database of 11500 ligand binding sites with a given protein
structure of substructure,
- screen the PDB with a given ligand binding site.
SuMo is based on a description of 3D structures of macromolecules using
various types of chemical groups with specific geometry, symmetry and
SuMo was developed at the PBIL Lyon-Gerland, France.
SuMo was written entirely in Objective Caml (http://caml.inria.fr).
Please don't forget to cite our publication:
