Paper: Protein Folding And Chart Parsing

ACL ID W06-1635
Title Protein Folding And Chart Parsing
Venue Conference on Empirical Methods in Natural Language Processing
Session Main Conference
Year 2006

How can proteins fold so quickly into their unique native structures? We show here that there is a natural analogy between parsing and the protein folding problem, and demonstrate that CKY can find the na- tive structures of a simplified lattice model of proteins with high accuracy.
