Description:

TRAPP is intended to aid the discovery of ligands that bind in transient subpockets in proteins. TRAPP is not designed to identify all of a protein’s binding pockets, but rather to trace changes in the spatial and physicochemical properties of a specified pocket in a protein that may arise due to the protein’s flexibility.

More information can be found on the TRAPP webserver page (http://trapp.h-its.org)

The TRAPP license prohibits commercial use of the code. For testing and using TRAPP on a commercial basis you need to negotiate a commercial license by contacting us.
