A little walk from physical to biological complexity: protein folding and stability

BioRxiv : the Preprint Server for Biology
Fabrizio Pucci, Marianne Rooman


As an example of topic where biology and physics meet, we present the issue of protein folding and stability, and the development of thermodynamics-based bioinformatics tools that predict the stability and thermal resistance of proteins and the change of these quantities upon amino acid substitutions. These methods are based on knowledge-driven statistical potentials, derived from experimental protein structures using the inverse Boltzmann law.
