    Abstract

    Summary: SMotif is a server that identifies important structural segments or motifs for a given protein structure(s) based on conservation of both sequential as well as important structural features such as solvent inaccessibility, secondary structural content, hydrogen bonding pattern and residue packing. This server also provides three-dimensional orientation patterns of the identified motifs in terms of inter-motif distances and torsion angles. These motifs may form the common core and therefore, can also be employed to design and rationalize protein engineering and folding experiments.
