Superfacility Framework Advances Photosynthesis Research

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory

For more than a decade, a team of international researchers led by Berkeley Lab bioscientists has been studying Photosystem II, a protein complex in green plants, algae, and cyanobacteria that plays a crucial role in photosynthesis. They’re now moving more quickly toward an understanding of this three-billion-year-old biological system, thanks to an integrated superfacility framework established between LCLS, ESnet, and NERSC.

Modified deep-learning algorithms unveil features of shape-shifting proteins

Oak Ridge National Laboratory

To function properly, proteins must morph into specific 3D shapes through a biophysical phenomenon called protein folding. Researchers at ORNL are using various deep-learning techniques to study the intermediate protein stages between the initial unfolded state and the final folded state, which are notoriously difficult to characterize. These methods could also help identify factors that cause proteins to “misfold” into dysfunctional shapes, a phenomenon often attributed as a leading factor in the development of diseases including Alzheimer’s, cardiovascular disorders, and diabetes.
