Protein folding simulations in a deformed energy landscape

  • U.H.E. Hansmann


A modified version of stochastic tunneling, a recently introduced global optimization technique, is introduced as a new generalized-ensemble technique and tested for a benchmark peptide, Met-enkephalin. It is demonstrated that the new technique allows to evaluate folding properties and especially the glass temperature \(\) of this peptide.
