AlphaFold AI predicts the structure of nearly every known protein

AlphaFold AI predicts the structure of nearly every known protein

The incredible AI offers itself a second major scientific revolution in the space of barely a year. In July 2021, almost a year ago to the day, DeepMind teams dropped a veritable atomic bomb in the world of molecular biology; the firm presented an incredible database where its AlphaFold AI predicted the 3D structure of …

ANTIBIORESISTANCE: An aberrant protein that kills bacterial cells

Because the protein is truly deadly for bacterial cells. Scientists describe how this ‘erroneously’ constructed protein mimics the action of aminoglycosides, a class of antibiotics. The protein could also serve as a model for a new class of antibiotics. A new strategy for controlling bacterial growth A chance discovery: Initially, the Brookhaven team, which specializes …
