NetWheels: A Web Application to Create High Quality Peptide Helical Wheel and Net Projections

Author(s): Mól AR, Castro MS, Fontes W.

Helices are one of the most common secondary structures found in peptides and proteins. The wheel and net projections have been proposed to represent in two dimensions the tridimensional helical structures and facilitate the observation of their properties, especially in terms of residues polarity and intramolecular bonding. Nevertheless, there are few software options to create these projections. We have developed a web-based application that has several Features to create, customize and export these projections and is freely available at or
