The local newspaper “La Mañana Diari de Ponent” has echoed a computational study of proteins performed by an international team led by the University of Washington (UW) in Seattle. The first author of the study, Enrique Marcos, is currently working in IRB Barcelona's Molecular Modelling and Bioinformatics Lab.

Published in Science, the study has deciphered key rules that govern how proteins form pocket-like structures that are essential for many key protein functions.
