  • Scientists on Thursday unveiled the most exhaustive database yet of the proteins that form the building blocks of life, in a breakthrough observers said would “fundamentally change biological research”.
  • To create the database, scientists used a state-of-the-art machine learning program that was able to accurately predict the shape of proteins based on their amino acid sequences.
  • The AI then used an algorithm to make accurate predictions of the shape of 58 percent of all proteins within the human proteome.
