How hydrophobicity shapes protein assemblies

Through a nuanced balance of electrical and hydrophobic forces, biological molecules self-assemble into the large functional structures that maintain life's vital functions. Understanding how proteins self-assemble requires ...

Deep learning for new protein design

The key to understanding proteins—such as those that govern cancer, COVID-19, and other diseases—is quite simple: Identify their chemical structure and find which other proteins can bind to them. But there's a catch.

Researchers reveal DNA repair mechanism

A new study adds to an emerging, radically new picture of how bacterial cells continually repair faulty sections of their DNA.

Examining the role of 'blind dating' in bacteria evolution

Proteins are the key players for virtually all molecular processes within the cell. To fulfill their diverse functions, they have to interact with other proteins. Such protein-protein interactions are mediated by highly complementary ...
