The Universal Plausibility Metric (UPM) & Principle (UPP)

David L Abel
2009 Theoretical Biology and Medical Modelling  
A precisely defined universal bound is needed beyond which the assertion of plausibility, particularly in life-origin models, can be considered operationally falsified.  ...  Both UPM and UPP pre-exist and are independent of any experimental design and data set.  ...  Philosophic and especially religious perspectives have no place in scientific literature, and are irrelevant to the technical UPM calculation and UPP presented in this paper.  ...

Software for computational peptide identification from MS–MS data

Changjiang Xu, Bin Ma
2006 Drug Discovery Today  
Computational methods are then invoked to identify the peptides, which are later combined together to identify the protein.  ...  Because of the difficulty of measuring intact proteins using MS-MS, typically a protein is enzymically digested into peptides and the MS-MS spectrum of each peptide is measured.  ...  The theoretical spectrum of the peptide sequence is computed using a simple model. The spectrum is then displaced by adding a displacement value t to the m/z value of each peak.  ...

Activity Determinants of Helical Antimicrobial Peptides: A Large-Scale Computational Study

Yi He, Themis Lazaridis, Spencer J. Williams
2013 PLoS ONE  
Here we test this hypothesis by using binding free energy data collected from the literature and theoretical binding energies calculated from implicit membrane models for 53 helical AMPs.  ...  The majority of these peptides are cationic and are thought to function by permeabilizing the bacterial membrane, either by making pores or by dissolving it ('carpet' model).  ...  These are obtained here theoretically using an implicit membrane model.  ...
