Cheng Receives $1.37M NIH Grant to Predict Protein Structures

Using artificial intelligence technologies, Thompson Professor Jianlin Cheng is devising a way to predict 3-dimensional protein structures. The method translates a protein sequence into a 2-dimensional map to predict the structure. Knowing the three-dimensional structure of proteins—such as the shape of the spike-like protein that injects coronavirus into our cells—can help us treat illnesses. That’s [...]
