New Gromacs A4 projects: p10720-10722

By , the in Folding@Home Project - No comment
Dan Vanetta has released several new projects concentrated on studying Vancomycin, a Glycopeptide class antibiotic, and the peptide to which it binds. Vancomycin is an antibiotic of last resort used to treat infections which are resistant to Methicillin, a penicillin used to treat non-resistant Staphylococcus aureus. Recently, examples of Vancomycin resistance have been discovered, so these projects aim to study the method of resistance.
