Protein design models: Inpainting, Hallucination and MPNN

In the third workshop we will examine some of the most useful protein design models. Following a quick refresher we will explore "inpainting" as a super-tool for auto-completing one or several parts of any given design. We will next take a look at hallucination as a method to auto-generate de-novo proteins given a set of spatial restrictions. Finally we will review a recently published sequance design model (MPNN), which allows sequance optimization of any given protein structure. 


Amijai Saragovi - is a protein designer at the Baker Lab. The Institute of Protein Design (IPD), Washington, USA. He holds a PhD in immunobiology from the Hebrew University and a BSc in Economics from the School of Oriental and African Studies, the University of London. As a protein designer he is particularly interested in understanding and developing methods to design protein-inorganic hybrid materials, a technology that he believes could contribute to the development of sustainable electronics and batteries.
