The roughness of the protein energy surface poses a significant challenge to search algorithms that seek to obtain a structural characterization of the native state. Recent research seeks to bias search toward near-native conformations through one-dimensional structural profiles of the protein native state. Here we investigate the effectiveness of such(More)
OBJECTIVES Recurrent caries was partly ascribed to lack of antibacterial properties in composite resin. Silver and zinc nanoparticles are considered to be broad-spectrum antibacterial agents. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the antibacterial properties of composite resins containing 1% silver and zinc-oxide nanoparticles on Streptococcus mutans(More)
—Protein structure prediction remains a central challenge in computational structural biology. Even at the coarse-grained level of detail, the protein conformational space is vast, and available energy functions contain many false local minima. In order to effectively characterize this space, a conformational search must sample a geometrically-diverse set(More)
