Genome sequencing projects have resulted in a rapid increase in the number of known protein sequences. In contrast, only about one-hundredth of these sequences have been characterized using experimental structure determination methods. Computational protein structure modeling techniques have the potential to bridge this sequence-structure gap. This chapter presents an example that illustrates the use of MODELLER to construct a comparative model for a protein with unknown structure. Automation of similar protcols has resulted in models of useful accuracy for domains in more than half of all known protein sequences.
