Predicting how DNA mutations affect proteins is focus of new NIH study

A team of scientists from Clemson University and Cornell University is developing the first set of computational techniques that can predict how DNA mutations affect proteins and protein-to-protein interactions, which are vital in determining how the body’s tissues and organs function. Their study also holds the potential to accelerate the synthesis of new drug treatments for a variety of genetic disorders.
