Name: Protein Inverse Kinematics and the Loop Closure Problem
ID: m11613
Language: English (en)
Summary: This module introduces students to inverse kinematics, which is the problem of finding values of the degrees of freedom of a manipulator chain so that the chain satisfies given spatial constraints. An application of inverse kinematics to solve the loop closure problem in structural biology is also presented.
Subject: Science and Technology
