The program ProtEvol performs two kinds of computation.
- It computes the mean-field site-specific amino acid distributions that have minimal differences with respect to the background distribution and that constraint the average stability of the native state of the protein against both unfolding and misfolding. The program also computes an exchangeability matrix derived from an empirical substitution model or from a mutation model that can be used together with the site-specific distributions for applications in phylogenetic inference.
- It simulates protein evolution subject to the constraint of selection on the folding stability of the native state of the protein against both unfolding and misfolding.
