New AI unveiled for protein structure prediction

Two independent groups unveiled new Artificial Intelligence (AI) to decipher the 3D structure of proteins from their amino acid sequences. The methods called Alphafold and  RoseTTAFold  methods  are touted to revolutionize the way protein structures can be predicted. This will help improve the decades old issue to solve protein structures which normally need complex and expensive techniques like X-ray crystallography
