Data from: Exploring the universe of protein structures beyond the Protein Data Bank

Pilar Cossio, Antonio Trovato, Fabio Pietrucci, Flavio Seno, Amos Maritan & Alessandro Laio
It is currently believed that the atlas of existing protein structures is faithfully represented in the Protein Data Bank. However, whether this atlas covers the full universe of all possible protein structures is still a highly debated issue. By using a sophisticated numerical approach, we performed an exhaustive exploration of the conformational space of a 60 amino acid polypeptide chain described with an accurate all-atom interaction potential. We generated a database of around 30,000 compact...
