ABSTRACT

The protein sequence analysis in bioinformatics is done by comparing the sequences residue wise. For pair wise sequence analysis or for multiple sequence analysis, the protein sequences are compared amino acid by amino acid. But the elemental composition of proteins gives the basic level of its organization. All the twenty amino acids are made basically from the five atoms namely – Carbon, Nitrogen, Hydrogen, Sulphur and Oxygen. Amongst all, carbon is the main element that contributes majorly to all hydrophobic reactions. The protein sequence analysis cannot be done by solely comparing their amino acids, but it could be done by going one more step down and comparing the atoms. The present review shows an insight to the upcoming atom level comparison and its potential effects on sequence analysis.
