                        terra' un seminario dal titolo:

              *Protein folding: can computers solve the problem?*

                                   Abstract:
    It is still impossible to predict when a polypeptide folds into a unique
structure using computer simulations since 1) even the most detailed models are
not accurate enough to describe the native state as an absolute minimum in free
 energy, 2) the folding timescale is too long to be simulated in a computer. I
will present two approaches to protein folding using atomic models which try to
                             overcome these limits.
