Computational Mapping of Proteins for Binding of Ligands. Start date: Feb. 2003. Expires Jan. 2007. Amount: $216,624. Principal investigator: Sandor Vajda. Institution: Boston University. NIH Institute: NIGMS.
Project aims to develop software for high-throughput computational solvent mapping — a method that places molecular probes on a protein surface to predict the most favorable binding positions. Solvent mapping will also be tested for its ability to identify functional sites in other types of proteins.
