ULTRA-condensed knowledge


Opportunity, DeepMind has given a three-dimensional structure to proteins, which promises a great help for the design of medicines and drugs
  • DeepMind has given 3-D structure to 350,000 proteins, including every one made by humans, promising a boon for medicine and drug design.
Lesson learned, DeepMind is making a significant contribution to humanity’s understanding of biology
  • On Thursday, DeepMind released the predicted shapes of more than 350,000 proteins — the microscopic mechanisms that drive the behavior of bacteria, viruses, the human body and all other living things. 
  • This new database includes the three-dimensional structures for all proteins expressed by the human genome, as well as those for proteins that appear in 20 other organisms, including the mouse, the fruit fly and the E. coli bacterium. 
Lesson learned, A potential revolution in health and materials
  • This vast and detailed biological map — which provides roughly 250,000 shapes that were previously unknown — may accelerate the ability to understand diseases, develop new medicines and repurpose existing drugs. 
  • It may also lead to new kinds of biological tools, like an enzyme that efficiently breaks down plastic bottles and converts them into materials that are easily reused and recycled.
