This paper presents a clustering and visualization technique for analyzing dihedral angles of large protein sequences. The clustering is used for discovering and grouping those similar dihedrals while the visualization can display and navigate sequences of dihedral angles of several proteins as well as their clustered property. In order to visualize a very large sequence of hundred thousands of dihedral signals, we plot them on a spiral coordinate system. This spiral visualization ensures the linear distribution without distortion or interruption of a very long sequence of points. A clustering algorithm is also provided to group those dihedral signals into different clusters so that it can enhance the analysis process. Our system can also zoom to display a number of selected proteins interactively. © 2006 IEEE.
