Everyone enjoys a little friendly competition, including protein structure prediction researchers. In fact, more than 200 groups of these experts worldwide recently created some 15,000 different computer models of protein structures to see who could make the best predictions.
Successful modelers will present and discuss their work in Gaeta, Italy, from December 4-8 at the Critical Assessment of Techniques for Protein Structure Prediction meeting (CASP), sponsored in part by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS), a component of the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The meeting, along with a community-wide experiment that precedes it, takes place every other year.
