Side-chain Packing Using SE(3)-Transformer

Pac Symp Biocomput. 2022:27:46-55.


Predicting protein side-chains is important for both protein structure prediction and protein design. Modeling approaches to predict side-chains such as SCWRL4 have become one of the most widely used tools of its type due to fast and highly accurate predictions. Motivated by the recent success of AlphaFold2 in CASP14, our group adapted a 3D equivariant neural network architecture to predict protein side-chain conformations, specifically within a protein-protein interface, a problem that has not been fully addressed by AlphaFold2.
