David Bak­er's lab re­leas­es new pro­tein de­sign and study tools as AI race ac­cel­er­ates

Sci­en­tists from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Wash­ing­ton have re­leased new tools for pre­dict­ing how pro­teins in­ter­act with oth­er mol­e­cules, and that can de­sign new pro­teins to bind with or de­tect mol­e­cules.

The AI-pow­ered soft­ware, pro­grammed by David Bak­er’s group at the In­sti­tute for Pro­tein De­sign in Seat­tle, is the lat­est ad­vance in what’s be­com­ing an in­creas­ing­ly heat­ed race by com­pa­nies and re­search labs to build on al­ready cut­ting-edge ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence tech­nolo­gies used for pro­tein de­sign.
