Predicting protein structure, episode 2 Conversations with scientists

    • Science

Data about proteins has a home in the Protein Data Bank (PDB). Structural data for over 180,000 proteins. Now, with AlphaFold from DeepMind Technologies, an Alphabet company, there's an EBI-AlphaFold database for structures generated computationally. What does this mean for the Protein Data Bank? And how does the PDB relate to AlphaFold? What's next? Helen Berman, co-founder of the PDB and co-architect of its next chapter shares her thoughts about the future, the past.
