The project aims at developing advanced computing techniques, focussing in constraint programming, and to show how their integration with other techniques such as automated learning and meta-heuristics optimisation, can be used to solve a very important problem: the determination of protein structure from Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) spectroscopy.
Started in 2005 and was concluded in December 2007.
