AI-Powered Design of Proteins for Medicines, Vaccines, and Climate Solutions

Scientists train AI to produce medicines and vaccines

Scientists have created artificial intelligence software which can produce proteins that could be used as cancer treatments, vaccines or tools to remove carbon pollution from the air.

The University of Washington School of Medicine, in collaboration with Harvard University, led this research published today in Science. The article’s title is \”Scaffolding functional protein sites using deep learning.\”

David Baker, HHMI investigator and professor of biochemistry, UW Medicine, said that designed proteins are capable of doing so much more than the proteins found in nature. In this work, we demonstrate that machine learning can help design proteins with many different functions.
