This page provides a summary view of the protein structure alignment.
It is also possible to view this alignment using the stand-alone Java Web Start application.
A detailed description
of the procedure for the all vs. all alignments is available.
The alignment displayed on this page is based on the jCE algorithm, a Java port of the original
Combinatorial Extension (CE) algorithm. (Implementation by
