MIPT in Moscow Develops New Method of Calculating Protein Interaction

Biologists and mathematicians from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT) have accelerated the rate at which a computer can predict the structure of protein complexes in a cell. “The new method enables us to model the interaction of proteins at the genome level. This will give us a better understanding of how our cells function and may enable drug development for diseases caused by ‘incorrect’ protein interactions,” commented Dima Kozakov, a professor at Stony Brook and adjunct professor at MIPT.
