Proteins are vital components of living cells. A number of diseases such as Alzheimer's, Cystic fibrosis and Mad Cow diseases are shown to result from malfunctioning of proteins. Protein folding problem is the process of predicting the optimal 3D molecular structure of a protein, or tertiary structure, which is an indication of its proper function. An enhancement over Cellular Genetic Algorithm (CGA) and Cellular Estimation of Distribution Algorithm (CEDA) was made to minimize the energy of… CONTINUE READING
