|How does this help?
Sep 25, 2011
I just read this article and I'd like to know how this helps research in HIV and AIDS since the article itself does not explain how discovering the protein is helpful nor how or when its uses should come to our sight http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-14986013

The technology, in this case looking at the HIV protease enzyme, allows researchers to better look at the 3D structure, and design compounds that will completely block its function. This technology has broad application for many diseases and is not limited to HIV protein structure.
