Prediction of protein structures and complexes with AlphaFold on the HPC

At the end of 2020, results for the CASP14 (Critical Assessment for protein Structure Prediction) were released. Just like in 2018, DeepMind Technologies won the competition with their deep (machine) learning based AlphaFold prediction models. However, the leap in prediction accuracy now raised...

Learning structural bioinformatics and evolution with a snake puzzle

We propose here a working unit for teaching basic concepts of structural bioinformatics and evolution through the example of a wooden snake puzzle, strikingly similar to toy models widely used in the literature of protein folding. In our experience, developed at a Master’s course at the...

Viewing 3D Structures with Deep View

Many proteins have had their structures experimentally determined, and an examination of these structures can provide valuable insights into the function of these molecules. This course will show you how to use the free Deep View software to view and analyse both single and multiple protein...
