SciPhi Interview | Develop “AlphaFold” in proteomics

Over the past year, AlphaFold 2 cracked the protein folding problem, and shared the searchable database of species proteomes, as open-source software.

Over the past year, AlphaFold 2 cracked the protein folding problem and share the searchable database of species proteomes as open-source software. Dr. TiannanGuo, the founder of Westlake Omics, expressing, “We are happy to see AlphaFold2 makes accurate predictions of protein structure through the amino acidsequence. If we compare living beings to watches or cars; proteins are the gears of life’s activities. But we can’t only use the shape of gear (structure of proteins) to make watches or cars. If we want to explore more about how human bodywork. It’s necessary to know what proteins look like, and the types and amounts of proteins in various states of the body's cellular tissues, whichis what proteomics does.”

 

Tiannan Guo, the director of the Guomics Laboratory of Big Proteomic Data, has been involved in proteomics research for many years. He has made several original achievements in proteomic technology and application.
