ProBiS algorithm aligns and superimposes complete protein surfaces, surface motifs, or protein binding sites. It enables pairwise alignments of entire protein structures or selected binding sites as well as fast database searches for similar protein binding sites. The algorithm can find similar binding sites even in proteins with different folds and without prior knowledge of their location. ProBiS algorithm is parallel for single or multiple CPU platforms.
ProBiS Algorithm (current version)
For installation of the ProBiS source code on Ubuntu (or similar system) do the following:
Install the required libraries. MPI version of ProBiS requires Open MPI library. Both MPI and non-MPI versions require GNU scientific library and GNU C++ compiler. Installation of these libraries for Ubuntu is easy:
Compile ProBiS source code into executable program (see instructions in the 'makefile' on how to compile either the MPI or the non-MPI version):
To start type:
