Active site mutations that disrupt drug binding are an important mechanism of drug resistance. Computational methods capable of predicting resistance a priori are poised to become extremely useful tools in the fields of drug discovery and treatment design. In this paper, we describe an approach to predicting drug resistance on the basis of Dead-End(More)
Dead-end elimination (DEE) has emerged as a powerful structure-based, conformational search technique enabling computational protein redesign. Given a protein with n mutable residues, the DEE criteria guide the search toward identifying the sequence of amino acids with the global minimum energy conformation (GMEC). This approach does not restrict the number(More)
