SummaryProteins are the main active elements of life whose chemical activities regulate cellular activities. A protein is characterized by having a sequence of amino acids and a three dimensional structure. The three-dimensional structure has only been determined experimentally for 50000 of the seven million sequences that are known. Determining the protein structure from its sequence of amino acids is therefore a major problem in computational structural biology and is referred to as the protein folding prob…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
