The problem of accurately predicting a protein's three-dimensional structure from its amino sequence has eluded structural biologists for years. Novel methods of determining experimental restraints as well as advances in computational methods have boosted our progress toward this goal. I am interested in utilizing high-resolution cryo-EM data in conjunction with the BCL to determine membrane protein structure.
