Similarity Search for Ligand Binding Sites at Atomic Resolution
Given a query protein structure, GIRAF searches for ligand binding sites in the PDB that are structurally similar to substructures of the query. As a query, you can specify a PDB ID or upload your own PDB-formatted file. For more information, please refer to the help page.
