Protein Symmetry Assembler

Keywords: Proteins - Structural Biology

Scientific Description: Sam is a program for making symmetrical protein complexes, starting from a single monomer.

Functional Description: The algorithm searches for good docking solutions between protein monomers using a spherical polar Fast Fourier transform correlation in which symmetry restraints are built into the calculation. Thus every candidate solution is guaranteed to have the desired symmetry.
