Predicting local structure and function of proteins

Huzefa Rangwala, George Karypis

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

Proteins have a vast influence on the molecular machinery of life. Stunningly complex networks of proteins perform innumerable functions in every living cell. Knowing the function and structure of proteins is crucial for the development of improved drugs, better crops, and even synthetic biofuels. As such, knowledge of protein structure and function leads to crucial advances in life sciences and biology.
