Structure prediction of protein-protein interactions using a variant of best-first search algorithm

Project Description
I am developing a new protein-protein docking method based on a variant of best-first search algorithm, which addresses the problem of protein flexibility (sidechains and loops) in addition to translation and rotation. The inclusion of flexibility in the docking procedure is based on a study of the relevance of loop ensembles to protein-protein interfaces.
