SCOPe (Structural Classification of
Proteins — extended) is a database developed
at the Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley to extend the development and
maintenance of SCOP.
SCOP was conceived at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology, and developed in collaboration with researchers in Berkeley.
Work on SCOP (version 1) concluded in June
2009 with the release of SCOP 1.75.
SCOPe classifies many newer structures
through a combination of automation and manual curation,
and corrects some errors in SCOP,
aiming to have the same accuracy as the hand-curated
incorporates and updates the Astral database.
New pdb entries were added in a periodic update;
for more info on these updates, see the
2018-03-02: SCOPe 2.07-stable has been released, with nearly 10,000 new pdb entries added since the last stable release. Click either the About or Stats & History links for more details on what's new!
We are still without funding, but shutdown has been postponed for a year. More details are here.
