DeepMind offers AI tool to predict shape of all human proteins
Published (updated: ) in Artificial Intelligence, Bioinformatics.
Artificial intelligence has solved one of the greatest puzzles in biology, by predicting the shape of every protein expressed in the human body.
The research was carried out by London AI company DeepMind, which used its AlphaFold algorithm to build the most complete and accurate database yet of the human proteome, which underpins human health and disease.
Last week, DeepMind published the methods and code for its model, AlphaFold2 in Nature, showing it could predict the structures of known proteins with almost perfect accuracy.
