The webpage bioerga.di.uoa.gr provides, inter alia, a number of web tools and interfaces in the area of applications of informatics in biology.

Multiprobe LSH approximate nearest neighbors.  A web interface for LSHKIT: A C++ Locality Sensitive Hashing Library for approximate nearest neighbor searching in high dimensions (Author: Wei Dong at Princeton University). The web app can be used for Protein sequence similarity search with data from the Protein Data Bank (PDB) and is part of Deliverable Π4.1 of the “INSPIRED-ΕΚΠΑ” research project.

High-dimensional approximate nearest neighbors. k-d Generalized Randomized Forests (kd-GeRaf): A new data-structure for approximate nearest neighbor searching in high dimensions that introduces new randomization techniques to specify a set of independently constructed trees where search is performed simultaneously, hence increasing accuracy. Backtracking is omitted, and distance calculations are optimized, thus accelerating queries. The method is released as a web application. Paper by Avrithis, Emiris, Samaras. The web app can be used for Protein sequence similarity search with data from the Protein Data Bank (PDB) and is part of Deliverable Π4.1 of the “INSPIRED-ΕΚΠΑ” research project.

Lakes is a software tool for the prediction of protein binding sites. It analyzes the solvent and its contacts with proteins and defines clusters of water molecules, which mark potentially exposed interaction and binding sites of the protein. Contact: Dr Thanassis Tartas. Figure: black is the protein, colored are the oxygen atoms of clusters, red being the largest cluster.

Molecular conformations in Structural bioinformatics. Enumeration of all possible conformations of (small) molecules/proteins under geometric constrains; C-Space (interactive example). Paper by Emiris, Fritzilas, Manocha. Sampling of rotamers, and clustering to deduce structural determinants.
Graph embedding in Euclidean spaces, rigidity theory, enumerative problems of embeddings, distance geometry to compute conformations from NMR data.

Structure of Transmembrane proteins.  Geometric modelling of β-barrels and detection of the transmembrane region of a β-barrel transmembrane protein. Given a PDB file, the transmembrane region is detected by profiling the external residues of the β-barrel along its axis in terms of hydrophobicity and existence of aromatic and charged residues. Our geometric modeling of the barrel relies on combining nonlinear least square minimization and a genetic algorithm. TbB-Tool is the software tool. Paper.
