    Protein Peeling 2: a web server to convert protein structures into series of protein units
    Nucleic Acids Res. (2006) 34(Web Server issue) W75-8

    Protein Peeling 2 (PP2) is a web server for the automatic identification of protein units (PUs) given the 3D coordinates of a protein. PUs are an intermediate level of protein structure description between protein domains and secondary structures. It is a new tool to better understand and analyze the organization of protein structures. PP2 uses only the matrices of protein contact probabilities and cuts the protein structures optimally using Matthews' coefficient correlation. An index assesses the compactness quality of each PU. Results are given both textually and graphically using JMol and PyMol softwares. The server can be accessed from
