Homology Modelling

The term "homology modelling", also known as comparative modelling or template-based modelling. It refers to modelling a protein 3D structure using a known experimental structure of a homologous protein (the template). Structural information is always of great assistance in the study of protein function, dynamics, interactions with ligands and other proteins. The "low-resolution" structure provided by homology modelling contains sufficient information about the spatial arrangement of important residues in the protein and may guide the design of new experiments, for example site-directed mutagenesis. Even within the pharmaceutical industry homology modelling can be valuable in structure-based drug discovery and drug design.
