### Sting

What is STING Millennium
STING Millennium is a web based suite of programs that starts with visualizing molecular structure and then leads a user through a series of operations resulting in a comprehensive structure analysis:

amino acid sequence and structure positions,with emphasis on bi-directional coupling of sequence and 3D information
pattern search, neighbors identification,
H-bonds, angles and distances between atoms are easy to obtain thanks to the intuitive graphic and menu interface.
In addition, a user can obtain:

sequence to structure relationships,
analysis of a quality of the structure,
nature and volume of atomic contacts of intra and inter chain type,
analysis of amino acid relative conservation at specified position among homologous proteins, and
Accessible Surface Area
relationship of relative conservation to the intra-chain contacts
functional parameters deciphered etc..
