The Victor library (Virtual Construction Toolkit for Proteins) is an open-source project dedicated to providing tools for analyzing and manipulating protein structures. This Wiki will help you to discover how to use the Victor package through an example driven approach. We suggest to read the Introduction before the Tutorial to have an overview of the main concepts. Victor strength is its computational efficiency thanks to a C++ implementation and a vast repertoire of classes and methods that can be grouped in the following main modules:

  • Biopool (BIOPolymer Object Oriented Library) - The core library that generates the protein object and provides useful methods to manipulate the structure.
  • Energy - A library to calculate statistical potentials from protein structures.
  • Lobo (LOop Build-up and Optimization) - Ab-intio prediction of missing loop conformation in protein models.
