+ - Supercomputer sets protein-folding record->

Nicros writes: A specially designed supercomputer named Anton has simulated changes in a protein's three-dimensional structure over a period of a millisecond — a time-scale more than a hundred-fold greater than the previous record. Proteins are strings of amino acids that fold into intricate structures, which largely determine a protein's function. Understanding how and why proteins take on specific shapes has long been a goal of structural biologists, but previous computer simulations were too short to fully model the process.
