AliasesPocket Similarity Search using Multiple-Sketches
DescriptionPoSSuM enables rapid exploration of similar binding sites among structures with different global folds as well as similar ones. Moreover, PoSSuM is useful for predicting the binding ligand for unbound structures. Basically, the users can search similar binding pockets using two search modes(cited from original site).
