Protein local structure comparison aims to recognize structural similarities between parts of proteins. It is an active topic in bioinformatics research, integrating computer science concepts in computational geometry and graph theory with empirical observations and physical principles from biochemistry. It has important biological applications, including protein function prediction. In this chapter, we provide an introduction to the protein local structure comparison problem includingdoi:10.1016/s0065-2458(06)68005-4 fatcat:5dsp5xan5jccplavjamkklld4i
