Joint Center for Molecular Modeling (JCMM)



The main goal of the Joint Center for Molecular Modeling (JCMM) is to significantly improve the accuracy of models for remote homologs of known structures by exploring recent breakthroughs in protein comparative sequence analysis and structure comparison. JCMM consist of a computational core, implementing the newly developed algorithms and conducting the high throughput modeling calculations and scientific projects designing and testing new approaches.

JCMM projects include: further development of FATCAT and POSA algorithms and the development of novel pairwise and multiple protein structure alignments; protein structure dissection and its application in protein structure modeling - ProtMod; and model evaluation and refinement by integrating energy based scoring with new methods.
