Researchers use new approach to predict protein function
...ese methods will speed the task of identifying the biological
roles of some of the hundreds of thousands of proteins whose functions have not yet been discovered. Rather than trying to do (laboratory) experiments on 30,000 compounds to determine if they are substrates, with this approach you might do experime...
