REMC to study the thermodynamics of folding

Posted by dsingh on 27 Jun 2007 at 16:31 GMT

In all, these studies establish the extent of thermodynamic and structural pre-organization of folding of this model globular protein, and achieve the calculation of macromolecular stability ab initio, as required for ab initio structure prediction, genome annotation, and drug design.
