Coronavirus Protein Structure Prediction

Author: Dynah Perry

Coronavirus Protein Structure Prediction

Protein structure is significant to its function, so protein structure prediction is an important part of bioinformatics analysis for protein. To perform biological functions normally, protein molecules fold into one or more spatial conformations driven by many non-covalent interactions, such as hydrophobic packing, ionic interactions, hydrogen bonding, and Van der Waals forces. This is the research direction in the field of structural biology, where X-ray crystallography, NMR spectroscopy, and Cryo-EM technology are utilized to determine the three-dimensional (3D) structure of proteins. As an advanced service contract supplier in the field of structural biology, Creative Biostructure can not only provide experimental protein structure determination techniques for your coronavirus-related research but also predict the protein folding, local secondary structure and tertiary structure based merely on their amino acid sequences.
