  • Description

    a "quick" evaluation of steric packing in protein structures. Amino acid side chains are not represented in full atomic detail, but instead uses one or more averaged centers of interaction per residue. Side chain packing quality is determined from the spherical space available to each residue. Empirical pairwise residue contact potential can be used to estimate the correctness of model protein structures.
