[…] overall (global) shape and physicochemical properties of a molecule []. 3dzd can be also used to describe local properties of a molecule by first segmenting surface into patches as introduced in patch-surfer [] and patch-surfer2.0 []. unlike methods that describe global properties of a molecule as a whole, which we call later as global property-based methods or global methods, patch-surfer […]

[…] annotation. moreover, binding pocket prediction can be extended further to include additional downstream analyses, e.g., binding site comparison and mining. for example, pocket-surfer () and patch-surfer (,) identify ligand molecules that bind to predicted pockets by comparing their geometrical and physicochemical characteristics with a database of known binding pockets. these algorithms […]
