dc.description.abstractImmunoglobulin G is a Y-shaped globular protein, made up of four protein chains folded together into three major sections. A color model of the molecule can be seen in Figure 1. Both the role and structure of IgG make it a prime candidate for computational analysis. As an important antibody for fighting infection of body tissue, IgG has many biochemical properties that would be ideally replicated in the development of advanced pharmaceuticals. A proper understanding of how the molecule behaves in various contexts can help us better simulate its infection fighting ability through artificial means. With a proper analysis of the molecule, medical and pharmaceutical companies would be better equipped to model such behavior in the future.en_US
