CHAOS AND PROTEIN FOLDING

I would like to know if it sounds feasible to come up with a strange
attractor for protein folding in aqueous solution, and if so, can you
predict tertiary structure with this strange attractor?

Does anybody have any ideas about this subject? It seems to me that chaos
theory would be very pertinent to the area of protein-protein interactions,
protein-dna interactions and protein-solvent interactions. Are there people
working on this in the scientific community?
