All my peer-reviewed and blog articles on protein modeling, CASP, and AlphaFold

I compiled all my peer-reviewed articles (some papers, a couple of reviews, one opinion) and blog entries about modeling proteins without templates, the best tool out there so far (AlphaFold 2), and the contest on structure prediction that positioned its developer Deepmind at the top (CASP).

You can see all these articles here.
