Windows Protein Data Bank, WPDB
This program is offered free from the Computational Center for
Macromolecular Structures (CCMS) of the San Diego Supercomputer Center.
WPDB comes with a compressed PDB database of 320 proteins and nucleic
acids chosen to represent unique structures, and a means to search for
structures of interest. Version 2.0 was released in 1995, and comes
zipped into a file larger than 6 megabytes. It provides limited
viewing capabilities, and can use RasMol as a viewer for more
sophisticated viewing. Its strengths include sequence alignment,
structure superposition, secondary structure assignment, contact maps,
and profiles of volume, hydrophobicity, polarity, isoelectric point,
and mean exposure.
An excellent introduction and tutorial explaining
typical uses is available at the
the WPDB package.
