Return again to the ExPASy tools . Notice there are two sections dealing with structure prediction, secondary structure prediction tools and tertiary structureprediction and visualization tools. The secondary structure prediction tools are designed to predict features such as the helical content, the betasheet formations, and the turns, loops, and coil regions within a protein, given the sequence.

Explore the secondary structure tools independently, and submit the diacylglycerol kinase sequenceabove to any of the available secondary structure prediction tools. Most of these tools will email the results, with at leasta 20 minute delay between submission and receipt of results. Forward a results summary to the instructor, outlining the predictions created bythe program of choice.

Tertiary structure prediction tools match the query sequence with sequences, or partial sequences, of proteins where the 3-Dstructure has been published in the Protein Data Bank (PDB). These tools will produce a model of the query protein by piecing together the structuralregions from the best matches in the PDB, and threading the query sequence through the predicted structure. For more detailed explanations of available3-D structure prediction software, view the Swiss-Model demo page and the Geno3D reference page . Although both of these tools are searching for templates from existing PDB entries, they are doing this in different ways.

What program does Swiss-Model use to match the query sequence with sequences of known structures?

Notice that the template selection process and the model structure refinement processes are different between these two programs as well.

Finally, in the tertiary structure section of the ExPASy tools page, Swiss PDB Viewer is a graphical tool for the visualization, comparison and analysis of3-D coordinate files. Swiss PDB Viewer can superimpose 3-D structures by finding the rotation and translation that most closely aligns the two proteinstructures. Additionally, the Swiss PDB Viewer will perform amino acid mutations, prediction of hydrogen bonds, and calculation of angles anddistances between atoms. Best of all, Swiss PDB Viewer is freeware and available for many different platforms, including Macintosh, PC, SGI IRIX,and Linux.

View this supplemental SPDBV web page . What other function does Swiss PDB Viewer have, when used in conjunction withother applications such as OpenGL or POV-Ray?

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

good afternoon madam
what is system testing
what is the application of nanotechnology?
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
I'm interested in Nanotube
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world

At high concentrations (>0.01 M), the relation between absorptivity coefficient and absorbance is no longer linear. This is due to the electrostatic interactions between the quantum dots in close proximity. If the concentration of the solution is high, another effect that is seen is the scattering of light from the large number of quantum dots. This assumption only works at low concentrations of the analyte. Presence of stray light.
