  • A Ramachandran plot is a way to examine the backbone conformation of each residue in a protein.
  • It was first used by noted Indian biophysicist G.N. Ramachandran in 1963 to describe stable arrangements of individual residues of a protein. Today, a Ramachandran plot is frequently used by crystallographers to identify protein models with an unrealistic backbone.
