The SWISS-MODEL Repository is a database of annotated three-dimensional comparative protein structure models generated by the fully automated homology-modelling pipeline SWISS-MODEL. The Repository currently contains about 300,000 three-dimensional models for sequences from the Swiss-Prot and TrEMBL databases. The content of the Repository is updated on a regular basis incorporating new sequences, taking advantage of new template structures becoming available and reflecting improvements in the underlying modelling algorithms. Each entry consists of one or more three-dimensional protein models, the superposed template structures, the alignments on which the models are based, a summary of the modelling process and a force field based quality assessment. The SWISS-MODEL Repository can be queried via an interactive website at http://swissmodel.expasy. org/repository/. Annotation and cross-linking of the models with other databases, e.g. Swiss-Prot on the ExPASy server, allow for seamless navigation between protein sequence and structure information. The aim of the SWISS-MODEL Repository is to provide access to an up-to-date collection of annotated three-dimensional protein models generated by automated homology modelling, bridging the gap between sequence and structure databases.
