The 20 genetically encoded amino acids provide the basis for most proteins and peptides that make up the machinery of life. This limited repertoire is vastly expanded by the introduction of non-canonical amino acids (ncAAs). Studying the structure of protein-containing ncAAs requires new computational representations that are compatible with existing modelling software. We have developed an online tool for this to aid future structural studies of this class of complex biopolymer.
