Using AI To Create a Language of Protein Shapes

University of Maryland researchers used an artificial intelligence system to create an abstract language from the constant motion of biological molecules, such as the lysozyme molecule shown here. This language describes the multiple shapes a protein molecule can take and how and when it transitions from one shape to another--key information for understanding disease and developing therapeutics.
