Compiles several annotations of 3D structures, protein families, functions about proteins. GTOP intends to supply annotations of all the amino acid sequences of proteins derived from all the completely sequenced genomes. Users can make searches about a specific features or species. In addition, the database provides a summary section which allows to view comparative statistics including the ratio of 3D annotations in each genome, the frequencies of SCOP folds as well as superfamilies, or Pfa PROSITE motifs.
