About BetaWrapPro

BetaWrapPro is a program for prediction and comparative modeling of the beta-helix and beta-trefoil protein motifs. It accomplishes this by profile wrapping.

Please see the help page for more information.

beta-helix beta-trefoil
The beta-helix shown is a Rasmol image of Pectate Lyase C from Erwinia chrysanthemi, whose structure was solved by Yoder, Keen, and Jurnak in 1993 (PDB ID 1pcl). The beta-trefoil is a DeepView image of Human Basic Fibroblast Growth Factor (PDB ID 1bff), solved by Kastrup, Ericksson, Dalboge, and Flodgaard in 1993.
