TreePack 1.2 – Side Chain Assignment via Tree Decomposition

TreePack 1.2

:: DESCRIPTION

The TreePack program uses a tree-decomposition based algorithm to solve the side-chain packing problem more efficiently. This algorithm is more efficient than SCWRL 3.0 while maintaining the same level of accuracy.

SARA 1.0 – Side-chain Angular Replacement Algorithm

SARA 1.0

:: DESCRIPTION

SARA is a very fast method for doing single side chain replacements in protein structures by using a coarse- grained method. It is over five times faster than the leading all-atom approach, and generates biologically realistic side-chain angles. The solutions found by SARA typically deviate less than 1 ? and 12 degrees from native structures or the best all-atom solution. Run-time for the algorithm is highly predictable and can easily be tuned by the user. These characteristics makes SARA an excellent choice for high-throughput applications like structural genomics, evolutionary simulations and structure-based phylogenetics.

RASP 1.90 – RApid Side-chain Predictor

RASP 1.90

:: DESCRIPTION

RASP is a RApid Side-chain Predictor. To achieve a much faster speed with a comparable accuracy to the best existing methods, the authors not only employ the clash elimination strategy of CIS-RR, but also carefully optimize energy terms and integrate different search algorithms. In comprehensive benchmark testings, RASP is over one order of magnitude faster (~ 40 times over CIS-RR) than the recently developed methods, while achieving comparable or even better accuracy.

NASCA 20110516 – Side-chain Resonance Assignment & NOE Assignment

NASCA 20110516

:: DESCRIPTION

NASCA (NOE Assignment and Side-Chain Assignment) is an automated program for side-chain resonance assignment and nuclear Overhauser effect (NOE) assignment from NOESY data. It does not require data from TOCSY experiments.NASCA casts the assignment problem into a Markov Random Field (MRF), and extends and applies combinatorial protein design algorithms to compute optimal assignments that best interpret the NMR data. The complexity of the combinatorial search is reduced by using a dead-end elimination (DEE) algorithm, which prunes side-chain resonance assignments that are provably not part of the optimal solution. Then an A* search algorithm is employed to find a set of optimal side-chain resonance assignments that best fit the NMR data. These side-chain resonance assignments are then used to resolve the NOE assignment ambiguity.
