AI battle over protein geometry


A subsidiary of Facebook has published the 3D structures of more than 600 million proteins. An attempt to approach the performance achieved by a Google team.

In November 2020, DeepMind, a subsidiary of Google, struck a blow in the world of biology, winning hands down the international protein conformation prediction competition with its artificial intelligence software, AlphaFold 2. A spectacular success which capped decades of research by dozens of competing teams around the world.

In concrete terms, the power of AlphaFold 2 resulted a few months later in the publication in July 2021 of a register containing the structures of the 20,000 proteins of the human body, then, a year later, by a catalog of 200 million of proteins produced by a multitude of living organisms, from bacteria to humans.

“It really is a revolution.

n, summarizes Alexis Verger, CNRS researcher in the integrative structural biology team in Lille.

It is no longer possible to be competitive in my field without using AlphaFold


This week, Meta AI, a branch of artificial intelligence…
