DeepMind Technologies’ achievement of applying machine learning to predict 3D protein structures has certainly got the scientific world excited, with some experts hailing a massive step forward for medical research.

AlphaFold2 was triumphant in a biennial contest, the Critical Assessment of Protein Structure Prediction (CASP). It beat more than 100 other computational protein prediction teams in two categories – regular targets and interdomain predictions analysis. DeepMind’s software tested in illustrating 3D protein structures was already known by biologists, to some degree, without having been made…
