The Computational Chemistry & Molecular Modeling Group serves two major roles:
Three-dimensional structures are currently being generated at an exponential rate from experimental laboratories that focus on structure determination—X-ray, electron crystallography and NMR spectroscopy. Likewise, one-dimensional sequences of proteins and nucleic acids are appearing, also at an exponential rate. The appearance of sequences, however, is at a faster rate. The task, then, is to use the smaller data base (3D) to estimate 3D structures for molecules in the larger data base (1D).
