Relation between Protein Structure, Sequence Homology and Composition of Amino Acids

Author: Eddy Mayoraz


A method of quantitative comparison of two classifications rules applied to protein folding problem is presented. Classification of proteins based on sequence homology and based on amino acid composition were compared and analyzed according to this approach. The coefficient of correlation between these classification methods and the procedure of estimation of robustness of the coefficient are discussed.
