AI-Fueled Software Reveals Accurate Protein Structure Prediction

By Ashleigh Papp “The dream of predicting a protein shape just from its gene sequence is now a reality,” said Paul Adams, Associate Laboratory Director for Biosciences at Berkeley Lab. For Adams and other structural biologists who study proteins, predicting their shape offers a key to understanding their function and accelerating treatments for diseases like

Scientist at Berkeley Lab Played a Hand in “Inescapable” COVID-19 Antibody Discovery

An antibody therapy that appears to neutralize all known SARS-CoV-2 strains, and other coronaviruses, was developed with a little help from structural biologist Jay Nix

Chasing Their Tails but Getting Somewhere: Reimagining the Shape of Noise Leads to Improved Molecular Models

A Berkeley Lab intern and his mentor develop an algorithm that will extract better structures from low-quality crystallography diffraction data
