A computational suite for the structural and functional characterization of amyloid aggregates

Researchers from the University of Cambridge have unveiled a computational suite designed for the structural and functional characterization of amyloid aggregates. According to experts, amyloid aggregation is a hallmark of several degenerative diseases affecting the brain or peripheral tissues, whose intermediates (oligomers, protofibrils) and final mature fibrils display different toxicity (Protein folding and aggregation into amyloid).

The newly developed tool called Amyloid Characterization
