AlphaFold 3D protein structures are now browsable from WormBase ParaSite

posted 6 months ago by Dionysis Grigoriadis

Only a few months after the latest release of the AlphaFold Protein Structure Database that added three-dimensional (3D) structures of complete proteomes for 7 parasitic worms, we announce the full integration of these 3D models into WormBase ParaSite. For the first time in WormBase ParaSite, you can browse 3D protein structures visualised in a user-friendly and [read more]

AlphaFold added new 3D protein structures of parasitic worms

posted 1 year ago by Dionysis Grigoriadis

The latest AlphaFold database update in January 2022, added three-dimensional (3D) structures of complete proteomes for 27 new organisms relevant to neglected tropical diseases and antimicrobial resistance including 7 parasitic worms from WormBase ParaSite. Determining the three-dimensional (3D) structure of a protein has been a computational challenge for decades, and can provide essential insights into [read more]

About archive sites
