How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Motivation: Structure-based stability prediction upon mutation is crucial for protein engineering and design, and for understanding genetic diseases or drug resistance events. For this task, we adopted a simple residue-based orientational potential that considers only three backbone atoms, previously applied in protein modeling. Its application to...
In RNA viruses, which have high mutation—and fast evolutionary— rates, gene overlapping (i.e., genomic regions that encode more than one protein) is a major factor controlling mutational load and therefore the virus evolvability. Although DNA viruses use host high-fidelity polymerases for their replication, and therefore should have lower mutation...
