A cost-effective look at proteins - with a little help from robotics

An efficient and cost effective new method of studying the movement of proteins in the body has been developed through an EU-funded project. By taking advantage of the fact that proteins and robot arms both move in a similar way, the COMPMECH team has been able to adapt certain algorithms to simulate protein behaviour.
