Structural Bioinformatics -- Discussions Structural Bioinformatics is a field of study that uses data on macromolecular structures such as proteins, DNA, RNA, and complexes thereof to make new discoveries about living systems. Examples of areas covered are: - Structure comparison and classification - Structure prediction - Protein-protein interactions - Protein-ligand interactions - Electrostatics - Evolution Examples of journals which cover the field are: - Proteins; Structure, Function and Bioinformatics - BMC Bioinformatics - Bioinformatics - Protein Science - PLoS Computational Biology The field is also described in Structural Bioinformatics 2003 Ed. P.E.Bourne & H. Weissig from John Wiley and Sons (A second edition from J. Gu and P.E.Bourne (Eds.) will be published early in 2009.
