Structural bioinformatics

Jump to: navigation, search

Structural bioinformatics refers to the branch of bioinformatics which is related to the analysis and prediction of the three-dimensional structure of biological macromolecules such as proteins. The term structural has the same meaning as in structural biology, and structural bioinformatics can be seen as computational structural biology.
