The three dimensional structure of proteins can now be analysed with new mathematical methode

Four DNRF Centers of Excellence at Aarhus University have in collaboration developed a mathematical method to analyze the three dimensional structure of proteins. The new method can be an important tool in the development of new drugs and is a step on the way to solve the long standing ‘Folding Problem’.

QGM Centre Director Jørgen Ellegaard Andersen has led the development of the method, which is done in close collaboration with three other DNRF Centers of Excellence at Aarhus University:  Center for DNA Nanotecnology (CDNA), Center for Membrane Pumps in Cells and Disease (PUMPkin) & Center for Insoluble Protein Structures (inSPIN).
