The biological function of proteins is dependent, to a large extent, on their native three
dimensional conformation. Thus, it is important to know the structure of as many pro
teins as possible. Since experimental methods for structure determination are very tedious,
there is a significant effort to calculate the structure of a protein from its linear sequence.
Direct methods of calculating structure from sequence are not available yet. Thus, an in
direct approach to predict the conformation of protein, called threading, is discussed. In
