Theoretical and computational advances in biomolecular NMR spectroscopy

Curr Opin Struct Biol. 2002 Apr;12(2):146-53. doi: 10.1016/s0959-440x(02)00302-0.


Recent developments in experimental and computational aspects of NMR spectroscopy have had a significant impact on the accuracy and speed of macromolecular structure determination in solution, particularly with regard to systems of high complexity (such as protein complexes). These include experiments designed to provide long-range orientational and translational restraints, improvements in internal coordinate dynamics used for simulated annealing, and the development of database potentials of mean force to improve the description of the non-bonded contacts.
