PSILO: Streamlined Protein Family Analysis and Refinement
PSILO / AlphaFold Structures / Macromolecular Repository / Visualization / Pocket Similarity / Project Family / Family Management
MOE Project Families represent a uniquely powerful tool in structure-based drug design. Derived from a carefully curated multi-sequence alignment and a reference file of 3D protein structures that highlights critical structural motifs, these families represent a source of structural insight for drug discovery efforts.
When MOE protein families are hosted on the web-based macromolecular structural analysis and visualization platform, PSILO, these ‘PSILO families’ are automatically updated to include recently deposited structures. Following the adoption of a federated database architecture, this enables the seamless integration of both experimental and in silico structures from across the public domain and proprietary sources into PSILO families in a fully automated fashion. Moreover, following a tightened integration between MOE and PSILO, it is now possible to consume PSILO Families directly in MOE - ensuring an evergreen source of protein structural data which is readily available to all via the MOE client application.
In this webinar we will briefly introduce PSILO and the creation and maintenance of PSILO Families. We will briefly review the federated database architecture, highlighting how it enables the inclusion of multiple sources (e.g. RCSB, AlphaFold) into the PSILO Family process. Finally, we will demonstrate how to connect MOE and PSILO to enable PSILO functionality directly from within the MOE client, including the surfacing of PSILO Families.
