Welcome to 3D Protein Lab
The goal of this project is to allow you to search through the PDB database of protein structures using a combination of sequence and structure constraints. We have developed a pattern syntax that is an extension of the PROSITE pattern syntax. The sequence components are defined using the PROSITE pattern syntax, and the structural features are implemented using our own syntax. Please see the help page for a description of all the elements of the expression language. The search language and engine are described in our forthcoming publicationHawkins & Pisabarro (2010). 3D Regular Expressions for Protein Structure Search. (In Preparation).
To see an example of the results returned by 3D Protein Lab, load this example and run the query engine. This text will be replaced with the matching structures. Experiment with modifying the pattern to see how the results change.
