EGAD is a free open-source program for protein design and mutant prediction. EGAD's main focus is performing protein design on fixed backbone scaffolds. It can also consider multiple structures simultaneously for designing specific binding proteins or locking proteins into specific conformational states. In addition to natural protein residues, EGAD can also consider free-moving ligands with or without rotatable bonds. It may even be possible to use EGAD for drug design. EGAD can be used with a single processor, but it can take advantage of the power of parallelization to perform certain jobs quickly.

Some of the tasks EGAD can....

Ashley from Monash University in Australia would like to announce that the group she is working with have released a new version of the Protein Folding Database.

"The database aims to collect all folding data into one repository and, within the framework of the International Foldeomics Consortium, encourage sharing and data analysis. We are particularly interested in allowing the graphical analysis of raw-data on the site."

You can register to do advanced searches and to submit your own protein folding data.
