FADE and PADRE (Fast Atomic Density Evaluator and Pairwise Atomic Density Reverse Engineering)
Last Update: 10-25-2001

FADE (Fast Atomic Density Evaluator) and PADRE (Pairwise Atomic Density Reverse Engineering) programs are designed to aid in the molecular modeling of proteins. In particular, the programs can rapidly elucidate features of interest such as crevices, grooves and protrusions. The topographical information produced by FADE and PADRE can help researchers easily pinpoint the most prominent features of a protein, regions which are likely to participate in interactions with other molecules. In addition to providing shape descriptors to aid in analyzing single molecules, FADE can directly evaluate the level of shape complementarity for docked protein-protein complexes.
