SAD / Structural Alignment Database

Provides a data resource of structural alignments. SAD chooses a good alignment from several candidates via an alignment quality measure. This database uses alignments from multiple other databases and an ab initio method named internal coordinate mechanics (ICM) global structural alignment. It uses also the contact alignment quality score, a scoring function, to assess trial alignments by their statistical significance associated with their ability to reproduce conserved three-dimensional residue contacts.
