The ability to interpret the data from the study of mutant proteins in terms of a structural model depends in part upon the ability to recognize patterns within the data. The recognition of patterns in turn depends upon the ability to categorize the data in a simple, yet informative, manner. We have previously developed a scheme for categorizing equilibrium and kinetic folding data which allows us to analyze variant proteins (Beasty et al.
