The latest version of the AI-based AlphaFold has been recognized as a solution to the 50-year-old grand challenge in predicting the protein 3D folding structure by its amino acid sequence. To facilitate the use of AlphaFold2 for the ETH research community, Scientific IT Services (SIS) provide its Python package and databases required for running AlphaFold2 on the HPC Euler cluster. In this online event, we would like to present you the usage of AlphaFold2 on Euler and examples of applications.
