  1. 1. Protein structure prediction : Zinc-binding sites, one-dimensional structure and remote homology

    Author : Nanjiang Shu; Sven Hovmöller; Bruce Donald; Geoff Barton; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein structure prediction; zinc-binding; profile; homology detection; shape string; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi; Biochemistry; Biokemi; strukturkemi; Structural Chemistry;

    Abstract : Predicting the three-dimensional (3D) structure of proteins is a central problem in biology. These computationally predicted 3D protein structures have been successfully applied in many fields of biomedicine, e.g. family assignments and drug discovery. READ MORE

  2. 2. Ensemble methods for protein structure prediction

    Author : Marcin J. Skwark; Arne Elofsson; Michael Tress; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein structure prediction; model quality assessment; contact prediction; homology modeling; ab-initio prediction; consensus prediction; structural bioinformatics; bioinformatics; protein structure; biokemi; inriktning teoretisk kemi; Biochemistry with Emphasis on Theoretical Chemistry;

    Abstract : Proteins play an essential role in virtually all of life's processes. Their function is tightly coupled to the three-dimensional structure they adopt.Solving protein structures experimentally is a complicated, time- and resource-consuming endeavor. READ MORE

  3. 3. Protein Structure Prediction : Model Building and Quality Assessment

    Author : Björn Wallner; Arne Elofsson; Michael Levitt; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein structure prediction; proteinstrukturförutsägelse; Bioinformatics; Bioinformatik;

    Abstract : Proteins play a crucial roll in all biological processes. The wide range of protein functions is made possible through the many different conformations that the protein chain can adopt. The structure of a protein is extremely important for its function, but to determine the structure of protein experimentally is both difficult and time consuming. READ MORE

  4. 4. From Sequence to Structure : Using predicted residue contacts to facilitate template-free protein structure prediction

    Author : Mirco Michel; Arne Elofsson; Erik Lindahl; Johannes Söding; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; protein bioinformatics; protein structure prediction; contact prediction; machine learning; biokemi med inriktning mot bioinformatik; Biochemistry towards Bioinformatics;

    Abstract : Despite the fundamental role of experimental protein structure determination, computational methods are of essential importance to bridge the ever growing gap between available protein sequence and structure data. Common structure prediction methods rely on experimental data, which is not available for about half of the known protein families. READ MORE

  5. 5. Structure Determination and Prediction of Zeolites : A Combined Study by Electron Diffraction, Powder X-Ray Diffraction and Database Mining

    Author : Peng Guo; Xiaodong Zou; Christine Kirschhock; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; zeolites; rotation electron diffraction; structure determination; structure prediction; strong reflections approach; oorganisk kemi; Inorganic Chemistry;

    Abstract : Zeolites are crystalline microporous aluminosilicates with well-defined cavities or channels of molecular dimensions. They are widely used for applications such as gas adsorption, gas storage, ion exchange and catalysis. The size of the pore opening allows zeolites to be categorized into small, medium, large and extra-large pore zeolites. READ MORE
