Homologous structure alignment database

HOMSTRAD (HOMologous STRucture Alignment Database) is a curated database of structure-based alignments for homologous protein families. All known protein structure are clustered into homologous families (i.e., common ancestry), and the sequences of representative members of each family are aligned on the basis of their 3D structures using the programs MNYFIT, STAMP and COMPARER. These structure-based alignments are annotated with JOY and examined individually.
