Comparative modeling and protein-like features of hydrophobic-polar models on a two-dimensional lattice by Sergio Moreno Hernandez( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Lattice models of proteins have been extensively used to study protein thermodynamics, folding dynamics and evolution. Our study considers two different hydrophobic-polar (HP) models on the two-dimensional square lattice: the purely HP model and a model where a compactness-favoring term is added. We exhaustively enumerate all the possible structures in our models and perform the study of their corresponding folds, HP arrangements in space and shapes. The two models considered differ greatly in their numbers of structures, folds, arrangements, and shapes. Despite their differences both lattice models have distinctive protein-like features: (1) Shapes are compact in both models, especially when a compactness-favoring energy term is added. (2) The residue composition is independent of the chain length and is very close to 50% hydrophobic in both models, as we observe in real proteins. (3) Comparative modeling works well in both models, particularly in the more compact one. The fact that our models show protein-like features suggests that lattice models incorporate the fundamental physical principles of proteins. Our work supports the use of lattice models to study questions about proteins that require exactness and extensive calculations, such as protein design and evolution, which are often too complex and computationally demanding to be addressed with more detailed models

Birth and future of multiscale modeling of macromolecules by Michael Levitt( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The development of multiscale models for complex chemical systems began in 1967 with publications by Warshel and Levitt recently recognized by the 2013 Nobel Committee for Chemistry. The simplifications used then at the dawn of the age of computational structural biology were mandated by computers that were almost a billion times less cost-effective than those we use today. These same multiscale models have become increasingly popular in applications that range from simulation of atomic protein motion, to protein folding and explanation of enzyme catalysis. In this talk, the speaker will describe the origins of computational structural biology and then go on to show some of the most exciting current and future applications
Special NIH lecture : 2013 Nobel laureate in chemistry : the birth and future of computational structural biology by Michael Levitt( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

(CIT): More than 46 years ago, Dr. Michael Levitt was present at the genesis of computational structural biology, and indeed witnessed the emergence of computational biology as a field unto itself. His personal account of these historical events have previously been described elsewhere. Dr. Levitt along with Drs. Martin Karplus and Arieh Warshel won this year's Nobel Prize in Chemistry for the development of computer-based methods to model complex systems. Dr. Levitt's lecture will focus on scientific lessons learned from this work, some of the research that is ongoing in his group, followed by a discussion of his vision for the future of the field
Programme relatif aux femmes, à la paix et à la sécurité : une occasion pour le Canada de devenir un chef de file by Robert Nault( )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

« La participation des femmes au sein des institutions de sécurité renforce l’efficacité des opérations militaires et policières, et la participation des femmes aux processus de paix améliore la durabilité de la paix. Les investissements dans le programme relatif aux femmes, à la paix et à la sécurité et, plus généralement, dans l’égalité entre les sexes visent ultimement l’établissement de sociétés plus stables, plus inclusives et plus équitables. Par conséquent, le Comité permanent des affaires étrangères et du développement international de la Chambre des communes recommande au gouvernement du Canada de faire des femmes, de la paix et de la sécurité l’une des principales priorités de sa politique étrangère »--p. 1
