The CMASA (Contact MAtrix based local Structural Alignment algorithm) is a fast and accurate algorithm for detecting local protein structural similarity. It can predict protein function by comparing the query structure with functional sites database (recently, CSA is available). Furthermore, the CMASA can also detect the local structural similarity by searching the entire nrPDB or nrSCOP using the functional sites.
