Welcome to Hunter!

Hunter is a knowledge-based potential for protein structure modelling and evaluation. It is based on a novel 4-distance description of side chain interactions. Such description puts strict constraints on the mutual arrangement of two interacting residues and allows detailed analysis of preferable geometry of residue interactions (Cohen et al., 2009).

This web site interactively presents the 4-distance data on preferred geometry of side chain-side chain interactions (Atlas). Furthermore, Jmol visualization allows exploring mutual orientation of two residues in 3D space.

A web interface is provided to predict side chain conformations in protein structures, change in protein stability and binding affinity upon mutation (Submit).
