Episode 12: Markus Buehler on de novo protein design
Gopal Rao, chief editor for technical content, interviews Markus Buehler of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and editor of the Impact section of MRS Bulletin about his research on designing new proteins. Buehler’s group trains a deep learning model whose architecture is composed of several long short-term memory units from data consisting of musical representations of proteins classified by certain features. Their work is published in APL Bioengineering (doi:10.1063/1.5133026).
Markus Buehler is also the editor of the new Impact section of MRS Bulletin, that publishes new research: www.mrs.org/impact.
