More designer peptides, more possibilities

January 6, 2019 |

In Washington, scientists are more rapidly designing peptides for industrial and medical applications, such as catalysts for biofuels, through a complex computational model and real-time testing with the award-winning SLIM ion analysis technology. What used to be a slow process has been sped up thanks to a team of scientists who blended complex calculations with an award-winning ion analysis technology to rapidly design and test peptides.

Scientists from the University of Washington, Stanford University, and the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) created a computational model that allowed them to simulate various types of peptides and identify which were stable enough for use as scaffolding for industrial and medical purposes.

The new approach allowed the scientists to accomplish the work in hours instead of days. The resulting comprehensive library of designed peptides will serve as a foundation for future efforts.
