Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

    Abstract

    Large protein molecules with complex three-dimensional structures and dynamic behaviours pose a formidable challenge to humans in terms of mental assimilation, rationalisation and invention. SID technology comprises systems for analysing and displaying the structure of proteins and nucleic acids (proSID & nuSID). These systems are supported by an underlying database containing structural information. This drug discovery technology is currently the subject of negotiation between the University and an external pharmaceutical company.
