Proteins & Datastructures

I'm trying to write a C++ object that can read in a pdb file and represent 
a protein internally. The object should also be capable of performing
simple manipulations of the structure like deleting a residue or flipping a
peptide bond. 

My question is :

Are there any books or references dealing with the efficient representation
of a protein in a program?  Useful suggestions or programming tips are welcome 

Thanks in advance,
