RedStorm Licenses Protein Structure Software to UCSD

NEW YORK, Feb. 7 - RedStorm Scientific of Houston, Texas, has licensed its Fyrestar protein structure analysis software to the Universityof California, San Diego, the company said yesterday.

 

Researchers at UCSD, including the San DiegoSupercomputerCenter, will use the technology to develop new approaches for high-throughput protein structure determination and prediction.

 

According to RedStorm, Fyrestar predicts the thermodynamic properties and behavior of proteins, including their immunogenicity, aggregation, stability, and solubility.It is able to model more than 1040 possible structures that a protein can adopt.
