Proteins: Dynamics and Function

  • Martin Karplus
Conference paper
Part of the Basic Life Sciences book series (BLSC, volume 46)


The focus in my paper changes from the genes to gene products, which are proteins. I will describe some of the results of theoretical methods that are used to understand the functioning of these gene products. Since there is no plan for a “human protein consortium,” I will restrict myself to describing what has been going on in this area.
