This paper explores the use of spatial indices for the modeling and retrieval of protein structures. With two existing spatial indices, a preliminary framework for protein structure modeling that uses a spatial index is proposed. It provides a novel technique for modeling. In addition, it provides additional flexibility with respect to modeling granularity and structure manipulation. It is expected that this modeling approach will lead to new ways of analyzing protein structures.
