Another year went by, and there is still modeling work to be done. 2009 was a good year for the “Macromolecular Modeling Blog”. The number of subscribers almost quadrupled. We have several hundreds of twitter followers, and a twitter modelers list. And best of all we are still enjoying what we do.
What will happen in the blog in 2010?
* We’re working on a project covering the “state of the nation” in protein-protein docking, following the 4th CAPRI evaluation meeting, that should be posted as a series in the beginning of the year.
* Following good feedback on the “Molecular Modeling Jobs” post, we’re working on establishing (and updating) a Jobs section.
* Some new people will start writing for the Blog (Do YOU want to post at the Macromolecular Modeling Blog? contact us)
* You’ll read more reviews and literary digests.
* All that is interesting for modelers – what would you want to see here in 2010? tell us in the comments.
Good modeling “Karma”
It is a well known fact amongst modelers that the “true” energy function contains an extra energy term (which is by no means a two-body term) called the modeling “Karma”. Do you want to have good modeling Karma in 2010?
* Share this post with 5 friends and a structure will be published instead of that homology model you were working with.
* Share this post with 10 friends and your models will display sub-angstrom accuracy.
* Share this post with 15 friends and an experimental collaborator will call in with some good news.
* Share this post with 20 friends or more and we assure you that you’ll lend that R01 NIH grant in 2010.
We wish all our readers a very happy New Year and the best modeling Karma
