ORION (Optimized protein fold RecognitION) is a sensivitve method for protein template detection. ORION is based on a profile-profile approach that relies on a better description of the local protein structure to boost distantly protein detection. These descriptors called Protein Blocks (PB) encodes a structural alphabet defined by 16 folding patterns that describe accurately local protein structures (de Brevern et al. 2000).
