The Roles of Entropy and Kinetics in Structure Prediction.

G. R. Bowman and V. S. Pande. PLoS ONE 4(6): e5840 (2009)

Here we continue our efforts to use methods developed in the folding mechanism community to both better understand and improve structure prediction. Our previous work demonstrated that Rosetta’s coarse-grained potentials may actually impede accurate structure prediction at full-atom resolution. Based on this work we postulated that it may be time to work completely at full-atom resolution but that doing so may require more careful attention to the kinetics of convergence.
