A new family of global protein shape descriptors

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review


A family of global geometric measures is constructed for protein structure classification. These measures originate from integral formulas of Vassiliev knot invariants and give rise to a unique classification scheme. Our measures can better discriminate between many known protein structures than the simple measures of the secondary structure content of these protein structures.
