K2 Overview

K2 is a protein structure alignment program. It is based on our previous program KENOBI. K2 implements a fast vector based technique for aligning protein secondary structures. This initial alignment is then refined using the same basic algorithm utilized by KENOBI.

Please cite the following references if you use K2 in any published work.
