Hello all,

In the June issue of the Johns Hopkins Alumni magazine (I only quote from
the most authoritative scientific sources), it is claimed that the protein
folding problem has been solved by two Hopkins researchers: Rajgopal
Srinivasan and George Rose.  They have developed a computer program known
as LINUS that it is claimed can predict the folding of soluble globular
proteins.  The pictures that appear with the article are very impressive. 
It seems like this could be a massive discovery.  Would anyone with
knowledge of this work like to comment further?
