Statistical Analysis of Protein Side-chain Conformations

Journal of Physics: Conference Series. 2021. Vol. 1740. No. 1. P. 012013.
Ignatov A.

In the paper, three algorithms for predicting protein side-chain conformations are suggested and discussed. All proposed approaches analyze the local neighborhood of the target residue to avoid'steric clashes'. Strong and weak points of the algorithms are described, and ways of improving their outcomes are suggested. The approach based on predicting conformations for all residues in a protein chain segment appears to be the most promising.
