Protein Structure Prediction - Tertiary Structure - Side-chain Geometry Prediction
... Accurate packing of the amino acid side chains represents a separate problem in protein structure prediction ... Methods that specifically address the problem of predicting side-chain geometry include dead-end elimination and the self-consistent mean field methods ... The side chain conformations with low energy are usually determined on the rigid polypeptide backbone and using a set of discrete side chain conformations known ...

Famous quotes containing the words side and/or chain:

    We crossed a deep and wide bay which makes eastward north of Kineo, leaving an island on our left, and keeping to the eastern side of the lake. This way or that led to some Tomhegan or Socatarian stream, up which the Indian had hunted, and whither I longed to go. The last name, however, had a bogus sound, too much like sectarian for me, as if a missionary had tampered with it; but I knew that the Indians were very liberal. I think I should have inclined to the Tomhegan first.
    Henry David Thoreau (1817–1862)

    Oh yes, that’s right. They chain up wild animals. That’s all I am, an animal.
    John Elder [Anthony Hinds], British screenwriter, and Terence Fisher. Leon (Oliver Reed)
