canprot: Chemical Analysis of Proteins

Chemical analysis of proteins based on their amino acid compositions. Amino acid compositions can be read from FASTA files and used to calculate chemical metrics including carbon oxidation state and stoichiometric hydration state, as described in Dick et al. (2020) <doi:10.5194/bg-17-6145-2020>. Other properties that can be calculated include protein length, grand average of hydropathy (GRAVY), isoelectric point (pI), molecular weight (MW), standard molal volume (V0), and metabolic costs (Akashi and Gojobori, 2002 <doi:10.1073/pnas.062526999>; Wagner, 2005 <doi:10.1093/molbev/msi126>; Zhang et al., 2018 <doi:10.1038/s41467-018-06461-1>). A database of amino acid compositions of human proteins derived from UniProt is provided.
