New Algorithms by University of Toronto Researchers May Revolutionize Drug Discoveries
University of Toronto researchers have developed algorithms which can efficiently generate an accurate 3D image of a protein molecule from several 2D images in just a few minutes. This advance has far-reaching implications for the medical field. For example, drug researchers will be able to use these 3D protein models to analyze the structure of disease-specific proteins and predict the way experimental medications will bind to those proteins inside the body.
