3D protein structure similarity searching is one of the important processes performed in structural bioinformatics, since it allows for protein function identification and reconstruction of phylogeny for weakly related organisms. Due to the complexity of 3D protein structures and exponential growth of protein structures in public repositories, like the Protein Data Bank, the process is time-consuming and requires increased computational resources.
