Description

The auxons now have a rough shape that approximates the actual structure of the target protein. Piece by piece, they scour the model for shapes that look like they might contain a specific amino acid. With knowledge of both the protein sequence and the ways in which amino acids form shapes, an accurate atomic model of the protein is constructed.
