WEBINAR: AlphaFold: what's in it for me?

Morton, Craig

This record includes training materials associated with the Australian BioCommons webinar ‘WEBINAR: AlphaFold: what’s in it for me?’. This webinar took place on 18 April 2023.

Event description 

AlphaFold has taken the scientific world by storm with the ability to accurately predict the structure of any protein in minutes using artificial intelligence (AI). From drug discovery to enzymes that degrade plastics, this promises to speed up and fundamentally change the way that protein structures are used in biological research. 

Beyond the hype, what does this mean for structural biology as a field (and as a career)?

Dr Craig Morton, Drug Discovery Lead at the CSIRO, is an early adopter of AlphaFold and has decades of expertise in protein structure / function, protein modelling, protein – ligand interactions and computational small molecule drug discovery, with particular interest in anti-infective agents for the treatment of bacterial and viral diseases.

Craig joins this webinar to share his perspective on the implications of AlphaFold for science and structural biology. He will give an overview of how AlphaFold works, ways to access AlphaFold, and some examples of how it can be used for protein structure/function analysis.
