    © 2018 Elsevier B.V. Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) experiments provide distances between nearby atoms of a protein molecule. The corresponding structure determination problem is to determine the 3D protein structure by exploiting such distances. We present a new order on the atoms of the protein, based on information from the chemistry of proteins and NMR experiments, which allows us to formulate the problem as a combinatorial search. Additionally, this order tells us what kind of NMR distance information is crucial to understand the cardinality of the solution set of the problem and its computational complexity.
