This project is one element of the analysis “pipeline” to characterize an organism that previously has not been well-studied. Once a protein of unknown structure has been computationally modeled (based on its sequence similarity to proteins with solved structures), then catalytic sites are identified on the model by comparison to a library of known sites. This work tested the identification algorithms with a set of proteins that have known structures and catalytic sites.
