    Abstract:
    We develop a new global optimization strategy, gradient-directed Monte Carlo (GDMC) sampling, to optimize protein sequence for a target structure using RosettaDesign. GDMC significantly improves the sampling of sequence space, compared to the classical Monte Carlo search protocol, for a fixed backbone conformation as well as for the simultaneous optimization of sequence and structure. As such, GDMC sampling enhances the efficiency of protein design.
