Sequence and structure space are nowadays sufficiently large that we can use computational methods to model the structure of proteins based on sequence similarity alone. Not only useful as a standalone tool, homology modelling has also had a transformative effect on the ease with which we can solve crystal structures and electron density maps. Another technique-molecular dynamics-aims to model protein structures from first principles and, thanks to increases in computational power, is slowly becoming a viable tool for studying protein complexes. Finally, the prediction of protein assembly pathways from three-dimensional structures of complexes is also now becoming possible.
