  1. Retrieve a protein sequence of your choice that was listed in the SCOP structural hierarchy and obtain the sequence from the sequence link.
  2. Paste the sequence into the sequence entry window on the 3DPSSM server. This server searches a sequence (no more than 800 amino acids at a time) using a set of position-specific scoring matrices that are based on alignments of proteins that have the same structural fold and a similar sequence. A match to one of these matrices thus identifies a potential three-dimensional structure. The results are sent back by E-mail or to a designated Web site.
  3. How does the prediction compare roughly to the SCOP structure?
