  4. Abstract:
  5. The number of known proteins is increasing every day; tens of thousands have been studied and categorized by now. In this chapter, we propose amodel for protein matching or extracting similar parts of two given proteins. We focus on the computational geometric approach and the graph matching method that are used to model and compare the sequence and 3D structure of proteins. The remainder ofthis chapter is organized as follows. We first have a glance at the related works. There are two major methods used in the literature: Delaunay tetrahedralization and similarity flooding.We explain the required information in the next section as background knowledge, and then propose a new idea in Sect. 33.4 which can improve the current methods.We then present experimental results of the implemented method which show its effectiveness. © 2008 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC
