As we all know computer science, electrical engineering, etc. knowledge can be used in developing software and electronics/electrical products that can be sold to end-users (B2C).

Can protein modeling and simulation be used to develop such products other than drug discovery?

Or, is it just about scientific/academic research meant for B2B clients?

    $\begingroup$ Anywhere that experimentation can make money, so too can modeling and simulation if it is as accurate. There is big money in proteins. It doesn't even need to be as accurate, if it can save time, it has a market. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @Camps it sounds like you could expand that into an answer? $\endgroup$ Dec 10, 2022 at 16:43
