Insights into the 3D-structure of a protein have proven useful during experiment design. Experimentally elucidated structures are often not available, but comparative protein modeling provides a viable alternative in many cases. This unit presents comparative protein modeling and how to use the highly sophisticated but easy-to-use free software available on the Internet.
