I saw an article saying that DeepMinds AI has catatogued every protein known to science. I guess "known to science" and what is the theoretical limit is not exactly the same thing but the only way one can claim "known to science" at least as I can figure out is to have some idea what the highest value can be in the first place.
On the other hand it may be all the proteins known from every living object on the planet but I don't see how anyone could claim that when most species on the planet are not even know.
So that is why I ask is there is some theoretical limit.
As for example there is a theoretical limit for the highest possible element past the transuranics based on nuclear chemistry. I believe at some point the number of protons would not be able to stay bound long enough to get past the electrostatic repulsion. I think the number is 200 something. But that is an example and not my question. In this question I am interested in knowing how a computer algorithm could predict all protein structures if there was not a theoretical limit imposed in the first place.
I have never posted here before so if the question is inappropriate for this stackexchange my apologies
