Protein Folding Modeling

Speeding up the understanding of how proteins fold, from the MIT CSAIL Laboratory. We examined related approaches in the enterprise.  " ... Processing vast amounts of genomic data is an ongoing battle, but a new technique coming out of CSAIL for modeling nuances in protein folding looks to be more computationally efficient than current models. The method could cut the time needed to run atom-by-atom simulations from months to mere minutes. This discovery could be helpful in further examining genes’ role in disease.  ....
