Updating Non-redundant Unique Interface Structures as Templates for Modeling Protein Interactions

Classification of structures of protein-protein interactions may provide valuable insights for modeling and abstracting design principles. We aim to cluster protein-protein interactions by their interface structures, and to exploit these clusters to obtain and study shared and distinct protein binding sites and expand previously created interface datasets. The novelty in this work is in generating structurally non-redundant protein-protein interfaces which are sensitive to small perturbations in protein binding sites that have a significant impact in template-based docking.
