Scientific Description: Kpax is a program for aligning and superposing the 3D structures of protein molecules.

Functional Description: The algorithm uses a Gaussian representation of the protein backbone in order to construct a similarity score based on the 3D overlap of the Gaussians of the proteins to be superposed. Multiple proteins may be aligned together (multiple structural alignment) and databases of protein structures may be searched rapidly.
