Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

Large protein molecules with complex three-dimensional structures and dynamic behaviours pose a formidable challenge to humans in terms of mental assimilation, rationalisation and invention. SID technology comprises systems for analysing and displaying the structure of proteins and nucleic acids (proSID & nuSID). These systems are supported by an underlying database containing structural information. This drug discovery technology is currently the subject of negotiation between the University and an external pharmaceutical company.
