Topological graph indices have been used in calculation of several chemical and physical properties of some molecular structures in QSAR and QSPR studies. The first example is the Wiener index which was used in determining the boiling points of the isomers of alkanes in 1947. Since then, a large number of topological graph indices are used to determine several properties of chemical molecules. In this paper, several topological graph indices are calculated for one of the important chemical substance class called collagen having extreme importance in the movement of body parts.
