With increasing sophistication of instruments and techniques, in addition to the increment in intricacies, girth and complexities of the problems being addressed, simple methods (especially computational biology techniques) are being overlooked, replaced or phased out. One such technique on the twilight of survival is simple computational analysis of protein sequence i.e. property determination, homology modeling etc. Manuscripts reporting solely such type of analysis face upfront rejection, although some exceptions might exist. Only some predatory or beginner journals might accept such publications. This continues despite the fact that simple, cost effective, quick computational analysis of protein sequence has its merits and paves way for further research. This report is basically an attempt to keep the dying venture of protein structure modeling alive.
