Proteins are a large class of biomolecules that exist in nature. They're involved in nearly every function and mechanism happening in living cells. They even contribute to the production of new protein molecules. Computer simulations have helped scientists greatly understand the fundamental features of protein folding. In fact, much of their present knowledge about protein folding has been discovered or verified by computer simulations. Scientist greatly rely on these simulations, because other experimental apparatuses can't reveal protein dynamics with enough spatial and time-interval resolution. Additionally, computer simulations act as a flexible laboratory to test theoretical models, or even inspire them with their results, so that they are able to develop more realistic theories for different aspects of protein folding.
