ready CAPS-DB : a structural classification of helix-capping motifs


General Information
CAPS-DB is a structural classification of helix-cappings or caps compiled from protein structures. Caps extracted from protein structures have been structurally classified based on geometry and conformation and organized in a tree-like hierarchical classification where the different levels correspond to different properties of the caps.
