Biocomputation, with supercomputers as key tools, is allowing scientists to respond to many unanswered questions about these crucial agents for life.
The study appears in this week’s online version of the prestigious scientific journal Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
The newspaper El Pais reports the research developed by biochemist Modesto Orozco, group leader of Molecular Modelling Informatics at IRB Barcelona. The scientist is developing a large library which will contain 1,900 proteins in movement. To build this library Dr. Orozco is taking advantage of the new supercomputer Marenostrum, established by the UPC.
