A selection of some interesting papers of the past period. Unfortunately some are only accessible for subscribers. Some topics covered; protein folding and design, antibiotic resistance genes, RNA polymerase complex and a paper on choosing the right color for your data.
- Recovering a Representative Conformational Ensemble from Underdetermined Macromolecular Structural Data [$] Fushman – JACS: How to model the flexibility of proteins
- Comparing a simple theoretical model for protein folding with all-atom molecular dynamics simulations [free] Eaton – PNAS: Shows that, according to the Ising-like theoretical model, native structures grow in only a few regions of the protein in the folding progresses.
- Native contacts determine protein folding mechanisms in atomistic simulations [$] Eaton – PNAS: Based on David Shaws’ long MD simulation this paper shows that non-native contacts play no significant role in the folding landscape of proteins.
- Male contraception via simultaneous knockout of α1A-adrenoceptors and P2X1-purinoceptors in mice [free] Venture – PNAS: A study in mice on a novel way on male contraception using the knockout of a GPRC and an ion-channel.
- Automating human intuition for protein design [$] Baker – Proteins – How to incorporate the human-art-of-protein design into an algorithm (using Rosetta)
- The RosettaCon 2012 Special Collection: Code Writ on Water, Documentation Writ in Stone [free] Baker – Plos One: Introduction to an overview of RosettaCon2012 and the Special Issue of Plos
- Architecture of an RNA Polymerase II Transcription Pre-Initiation Complex [$] – Kornberg – Science: Shows a more comprehensive structore of the RNA polymerase using cryo-EM
- Metagenomic Profiles of Antibiotic Resistance Genes (ARGs) between Human Impacted Estuary and Deep Ocean Sediments [$] Li – Environ. Sci. Technol. : The interplay/transfer between Antibiotic resistance genes in a human impacted envoirment and an pristine envoirment.
- Selecting Semantically-Resonant Colors for Data Visualization [free] Heer – Computer Graphics Forum: How to choose a good color based on the “meaning” of the data (ie. yellow for banana).
