TU's Crop Disease Molecular Modeling Research on the Web

Over the past 6 years TU chemistry students/faculty have been using state-of-the-art computer software to create 3-D molecular models of proteins that are crucial to the understanding of crop diseases.  These protein models from a variety of bacterial and fungal pathogens (PGs) and defense proteins (PGIPs) from a variety of crops are being compiled and made publicly available online for crop disease researchers around the world to use. 

The new permanent home for these models is

Thanks to all the students who have contributed significantly to this research effort.
