In order to predict the structure of a specific protein sequence, scientists can construct an atomic-resolution model of the protein based on its amino acid sequence and the experimental three-dimensional structure of a related template protein whose structure has been identified and deposited in the Protein Data Bank (PDB).

This process is known as


homology modeling.


nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR).


x-ray crystallography.


genome sequencing.
