This claim will be judged YES if by 1 Jan 2010 knowledge of a protein's amino acid sequence is sufficient to determine its tertiary structure in a given medium. Success is defined by the following criteria.
Ambiguity clause: I will judge this claim based on its precise wording, unless this wording conflicts with my perception of the intent of the claim. If both intent and wording are ambiguous, I will look for a solution that causes the least damage to FX as a market and game. If you have any questions, or think you may have found a loophole, please contact me!!
The Protein Structure Prediction Center at http://PredictionCenter.llnl.gov/ has information on the latest CASP (Critical Assessment of Techniques for Protein Structure Prediction) meetings. CASP1 was held in 94, CASP2 in 96. In the past, these meetings have centered around a large-scale contest of protein folding prediction techniques.
