    Nicros writes with this snippet from Nature News: “A specially designed supercomputer named Anton has simulated changes in a protein’s three-dimensional structure over a period of a millisecond — a time-scale more than a hundred-fold greater than the previous record. … The simulations revealed how the proteins changed as they folded, unfolded and folded again. ‘The agreement with experimental data is amazing,’ says Chandra Verma, a computational (more…)
