From Genes to Proteins: NIGMS Catalogs the Shapes of Life

By Alisa Zapp Machalek

Now that we have published versions of the human genome sequence, what's next? For many scientists, the answer is proteins.

NIGMS is leading an initiative that focuses on one important aspect of proteins — their three-dimensional structures. While gene sequencing projects identify and arrange all the "letters" in an organism's genetic material, the NIGMS Protein Structure Initiative will harness this genetic information to help identify and group into "families" all the natural shapes that proteins can form.
