PConPy—a Python module for generating 2D protein maps

Show Summary Details


Summary: PConPy is an open-source Python module for generating protein contact maps, distance maps and hydrogen bond plots. These maps can be generated in a number of publication-quality vector and raster image formats. Contact maps can be annotated with secondary structure and hydrogen bond assignments. PConPy offers a more flexible choice of contact definition parameters than existing toolkits, most notably a greater choice of inter-residue distance metrics. PConPy can be used as a stand-alone application or imported into existing source code. A web-interface to PConPy is also available for use.

Availability: The PConPy web-interface and source code can be accessed from its website at
