A team from the Department of Structural Bioinformatics at ICHB PAS and the Institute of Computing Science of Poznan University of Technology, consisting of dr Maciej Antczak, dr Mariusz Popenda, dr Joanna Sarzynska, dr Tomasz Żok, and prof Marta Szachniuk, won the 3d place in the 3D RNA structure prediction competition.
Participants of the competition, were given the task to predict and model the 3D structures of 12 RNA molecules from the sequence. 53 teams from all over the world, including 3 from Poland, took part in CASP-RNA. A team of our employees submitted 61 models for the competition – their modeling took 2 holiday months. The results were announced at the CASP15 conference held in Antalya on 10-13.12.2022.
Congratulations to the winners!
