Project description

Each protein has a unique sequence and hence a unique fold, movement and function. Many protein sequences are known but only for few experimental data on their fold, movement and modifications is available. FoldMod addresses this gap from a computational angle by looking at: where proteins start to fold, understanding how proteins keep their fold, identifying where proteins become modified.
