Genetic Economy, Symmetry, And Computational Complexity For Atomic Virus Structure Determination
Genetic economy dictates that complex biological structures like viruses exhibit some degree of symmetry and are composed of sub-units repeated throughout the structure. This symmetry has a profound effect upon the complexity of computations required for structure determination from experimental evidence. In this paper we report on the relationship between the symmetry and computational complexity for 3D atomic structure determination of viruses, from experimental data provided by electron microscopy.
