Protein Structure Prediction is a very important field from both a theoretical and practical point of view. Knowledge of the three dimensional structure of a protein is a key requirement for understanding its biological function and being able to modify it. Techniques for experimental determination of the 3D structure of proteins suffer from a number of drawbacks which makes structure prediction techniques mandatory.
At ALMA Bioinformatica, we are interested in further developing strategies for the analysis and prediction of protein structure and function. Our tools integrate our own proprietary technologies with techniques developed and licensed by others. All our programs and tools have been tested at international meetings for the evaluation of structure prediction methods.
Some of the technologies offered by ALMA include:
The technologies and solutions provided by ALMA to its clients can be classified into three categories according to the level of involvement of the user in the prediction process:
