New 3-D method improves study of proteins

A new computational method called AGGRESCAN3D has been developed, allowing researchers to study in 3-D the structure of folded globular proteins, and substantially improve the prediction of any propensity for forming toxic protein aggregates. Proteins can also be modeled to study the pathogenic effects of the aggregation or redesign them for therapeutic means.
