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 www.pg-pgip.info

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