Novel 3-D Computer Model Can Help Predict Pathogens’ Roles in Cancer

Figure with an example of the team's 3-D modeling approach

To understand how bacterial and viral infections contribute to human cancers, four NCI at Frederick scientists turned not to the lab bench, but to a computer. The team has created the world’s first—and currently, only—3-D computational approach for studying interactions between pathogen proteins and human proteins based on a molecular adaptation known as interface mimicry.
