Google DeepMind’s ‘AlphaFold 3’ hints new Breakthrough in Drug Discovery


Google DeepMind has just unveiled the third major version of AlphaFold, known as AlphaFold 3. AlphaFold3 goes beyond the structure of predicting the structure of proteins. It can now predict the structure of various biological molecules crucial for life processes, including DNA, RNA, and small molecules that could act as potential drugs. Traditionally, determining structure of biological molecules has been a slow and expensive process. AlphaFold 3’s ability to predict these structures accurately with atomic precision could significantly accelerate the drug development process. This could lead to faster creation of new drugs and therapies for various diseases. Overall, it seems AlphaFold 3 is a major leap forward in AI-driven drug discovery.
