Protein molecules are very important as they are used for catalyzing almost all the chemical reactions in the cell, regulation of gene activity and provide cellular structure.
However, in predicting the structure of protein I haven't been able to find many use cases. In the omicsonline I was able to find a paper on Computational Methods for Protein Structure Prediction and Its Application in Drug Design:
Most modern drug discovery projects start with protein target identification and verification to obtain a verified drug target. For structure-based drug design the three-dimensional structure of the protein needs to be determined experimentally by using either x-ray crystallography or nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.
Therefore, since proteins are vital for maintaining the body are there any other use causes for predicting the structure?
