A brand new paper from the Baker lab in Nature! Thank you yet again for your contributions, Rosetta@home volunteers. Although R@h was not directly used for these designs due to size and memory limitations, your contributions are instrumental in Rosetta development enabling such science. Thank you!
"Design of a hyperstable 60-subunit protein icosahedron" describes the design of a 20-sided nano-sized particle that could be used to deliver drugs or to develop powerful new vaccines.
Author and Baker lab graduate student Yang Hsia spoke on a Nature podcast on the work. Have a listen to hear about this awesome work from the protein design experts themselves! Links below.
