Antonina Andreeva, Dave Howorth, Cyrus Chothia, Eugene Kulesha, Alexey Murzin, SCOP2 prototype: a new approach to protein structure mining (2014) Nucl. Acid Res., 42 (D1): D310-D314. [PDF]


SCOP2 prototype was a beta version of Structural classification of proteins (SCOP) used for the development of the current version of the classification that is available from it's original SCOP site.

Quick introduction on how to browse, search and download

SCOP2 prototype offers two different ways for accessing data: SCOP2-browser, that allows navigation through the SCOP2 classification in a traditional way by browsing pages displaying the node information, and SCOP2-graph, which is a graph-based web tool for display and navigation through the SCOP2 prototype classification. Both tools provide search of SCOP2 prototype data by free text, node names, IDs, tags and keywords, as well as external identifiers associated with them, e.g. PDB and UniProt. SCOP2 prototype data can also be retrieved via REST interface or downloaded from the SCOP2 Download page. For more information visit the About page.

Web browser compatibility check

Information about the release

This release contains a fraction of protein structure data. We introduced the prototype to our users to seek for a comprehensive feedback.
