Artwork depicting peptide structures

Matt King has been recognized by the American Chemical Society Journal of Chemical Information and Modeling. His artwork depicting a computational approach to screen more than 40 billion peptide structures for receptor interaction will be featured on the journal’s cover for this coming month’s issue.

His research article, titled “Genetic Algorithm Managed Peptide Mutant Screening: Optimizing Peptide Ligands for Targeted Receptor Binding,” represents a collaborative effort with Owen McDougal in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Tim Andersen and Thomas Long in the Department of Computer Science and Engineering. The article is now available at
