Projects 17801

Cause: cancer

BCL-XL apoptotic protein --- a drug target in lymphoma. More info coming soon. 

Together with project 17800 this is also testing new methodology --- adaptive sampling. This is the adaptive (first time on F@h) sampling version of the system.

Project 17801 tests a 'simpler' version of the problem for the adaptive sampling algorithm --- we start from 35 crystal structures and attempt to connect them into one model.

Project 17802 tests a 'harder' version of the problem --- we start from just 1 crystal structure and attempt to predict the other ones.
