In what is being considered as one of the greatest scientific breakthroughs this century, a collaboration between EMBL-EBI and AlphaFold from Google, using an AI system, has solved one of biology’s hardest problems, and published the predicted structures of over 200 million proteins.
Proteins are the atomic machinery and building blocks of life. They govern biological processes in living things such as speeding up reactions, and in viruses, hijacking cells. A protein’s shape is closely linked with its function, therefore knowing a protein’s precise 3D structure reveals a closer understanding of what it does and how it works. Therefore, AlphaFold may soon have a tremendous impact in aiding drug discovery and fighting some of today’s most intractable diseases.
Come and join us to listen to a Codex Talk by Ewan Birney, Deputy Director General of EMBL-EBI, on how AI has brought about this momentous advance in the life sciences, and what is means for combating disease, sustainability and food insecurity.
