Structural Classification of Proteins (SCOP)

Description

    Nearly all proteins have structural similarities with other proteins and, in some of these cases, share a common evolutionary origin. The SCOP (Structural Classification of Proteins) database, created by manual inspection and abetted by a battery of automated methods, aims to provide a detailed and comprehensive description of the structural and evolutionary relationships between all proteins whose structure is known. As such, it provides a broad survey of all known protein folds, detailed information about the close relatives of any particular protein, and a framework for future research and classification.
