Computational Protein Design

Some articles on protein design, computational protein design:

Models of Protein Structure and Function Used in Protein Design
... Protein design can be accomplished using computer models, which, while simplifying the problem, are able to generate sequences that fold to the desired structure ... Computational protein design algorithms search the sequence-conformation space for sequences that are low in energy when folded to the target structure ... This search space is large currently the most challenging requirement for computational protein design is a fast, yet accurate, energy function that can distinguish optimal sequences from similar ...

Famous quotes containing the words design and/or protein:

    You can make as good a design out of an American turkey as a Japanese out of his native stork.

    Firm-style bean curd insoles cushion feet, absorb perspiration and provide more protein than meat or fish innersoles of twice the weight. Tofu compresses with use, becoming more pungent and flavorful. May be removed when not in use to dry or marinate. Innersoles are ready to eat after 1,200 miles of wear. Each pair provides adult protein requirement for 2 meals. Insoles are sized large to allow for snacks. Recipe booklet included.
