Protein Structures And The Nature Of Life

Our major aim in the scoring project was to update the next generation about the plasticity of protein structures in a comprehensive and reproducible manner on one hand and to accumulate basic data for exploring the nature of life in the other. Every living organism is made up of water, carbohydrates, nucleic acids, lipids, and proteins.
