Protein Ligand-Binding Pocket Classification

Proteins are the fundamental units in life forms. Most proteins function via binding to ligands, therefore the study of ligand-binding proteins is critically important not only in general biomedical research but also in application field such as drug discovery. In a protein, the functional site for binding a ligand is the binding pocket. Pockets binding different ligand species vary significantly. Even for binding the same ligand species, different pockets still vary a lot. I am employing deep learning tools to build a framework to predict the binding ligands of protein pockets.
