is anyone as interested in the problem
of *ab*initio* protein folding as I am?
I'm sure!! perhaps one of the greatest computational,
mathematical, algorithmic, simulational,
biological, physical challenges
of the early 21st century.
lets get together & share info. I will
post odds & ends articles that Ive collected
to start with.
note that ab initio modelling attempts to
do it all in software. the inherent
feasibility of the approach is still open
(feel free to discuss it). we can discuss
other techniques like xray crystallography
but the idea here is to use all other approaches
to advance ab initio knowledge & techniques.
Focused on the ab initio protein folding problem,
the question of determining 3d protein morphology
strictly from software simulations, modelling, and
algorithms for molecular
dynamics (and/or quantum mechanics). Approaches
and issues of feasiblity, practicality, etc. Especially
interested in scientific and academic research.
