What is it about?

CGCD is a knowledge-based model intended to predict the circular dichroism spectra of proteins. It requires the PDB file of the protein and an appropriate characterization of its residues.

Why is it important?

Circular dichroism (CD) is a cheap a fast technique, however, it is not so easy to give a more quantitative interpretation of CD spectra. A CGCD predicted spectrum can help to bridge the gap between the protein 3D structure and the experimental data.


This classical model opens the possibility of better interpretations of CD spectra.
