DeepMind’s AI breakthrough in protein folding will accelerate discoveries in a range of biological applications [Full subscriber]

In a major scientific advance, the latest version of DeepMind’s AI system AlphaFold has been recognised as a solution to the 50-year-old grand challenge of protein structure prediction, often referred to as the ‘protein folding problem’, according to a rigorous independent assessment. This breakthrough, comprising a deep-learning system that can accurately predict the structure of proteins to within the width of an atom, could significantly accelerate biological research over the long term, unlocking new possibilities in disease understanding and drug discovery among other fields.…
