New links to AlphaFold 3D Predicted Protein Structure Database

November 09, 2021

  • The links through SGD give quick access to EMBLEuropean Bioinformatics Institute‘s new, highly accurate tool for predicting protein structure.
  • Given a peptide sequence for an uncharacterized protein, AlphaFold will model predicted domains and provide relative confidence levels for each portion of the prediction.
  • The predicted domains can then be compared to known protein structures (using a tool such as PDBeFold to seek matches to characterized protein families).
  • Whether or not a family is identified, the comparison will yield clues to protein function to help design the next experiments.
