Protein loop structure prediction

Abstract:

This dissertation concerns the study and prediction of loops in protein structures.

Proteins perform crucial functions in living organisms. Despite their importance, we are currently unable to predict their three dimensional structure accurately.

Loops are segments that connect regular secondary structures of proteins. They tend to be located on the surface of proteins and often interact with other biological agents. As loops are generally subject to more frequent mutations t...
