Metadata

Name: Representing Proteins in Silico and Protein Forward Kinematics
ID: m11621
Language: English (en)
Summary: This module discusses how to represent proteins in terms of the Cartesian coordinates of their atoms and in terms of the angle values of their rotatable bonds. It then discusses Forward Kinematics, which allows the computation of Cartesian coordinates when the torsional angle values are known.
Subject: Science and Technology
Keywords: atoms, bond, bond angle, bond length, dihedral angle, improper angle, kinematics, protein
