Structural Classification of Proteins and ASTRAL release 1.75B (January 2013)
Starting with version 1.75A, data from all versions of
SCOP+Astral since 1.55 are stored
in a relational database.

Since SCOP release 1.55, the
SCOP classification has
been distributed in the form of a
set of sequences, coordinates, and parseable files, all based on a
new set of identifiers. For an account of these changes, file
formats, file contents and meaning, see the Lo Conte et al (2002)
and Chandonia et al (2004) references under the
SCOP parseable files for version 1.75B:
