Welcome to Pcomp!

Pcomp is a database of rationally designed Peptide components for synthetic biology. Entries in Pcomp are tectons that form self-assembled units. These have the potential to combine into functional assemblies and further organised or encapsulated into systems.

Classes of tectons

Here are some examples of the tectons we hope to make and some applications we have made with tectons in Pcomp

Switches or multi-structure components Oligomeric Hubs - proteins forming a defined oligomeric state
Proteins forming fibres Linkers between components

Biomolecular design

Here is our current list of sets of tectons for for biomolecular design
