Protein structure is one of the most important and popular research topics in todays era. Reaesrch on protein structure, sequence and organization gives a broad view of its functionality.

Compliations of protein mutant data are valuable as a basis for protein engineering. They provide information on what kinds of functional and/or structural influences are brought about by amino acid mutation at a specific position of protein. The Protein Mutant Database (PMD) which is being constructed covers natural as well as artificial mutants, including random and site-directed ones, for all proteins except members of the globin and immunoglobulin families. The PMD is based on literature, not on proteins. That is, each entry in the database corresponds to one article which may describe one, several or a number of protein mutants.
