Genetic Threading

  title={Genetic Threading},
  author={Jacqueline Yadgari and Amihood Amir and Ron Unger},
The biological function of proteins is dependent, to a large extent, on their native three dimensional conformation. Thus, it is important to know the structure of as many proteins as possible. Since experimental methods for structure determination are very tedious, there is a significant effort to calculate the structure of a protein from its linear sequence. Direct methods of calculating structure from sequence are not available yet. Thus, an indirect approach to predict the conformation of… CONTINUE READING
