In addition, structural information of the proteins may not be readily available. In this work, we demonstrate how information about adsorption affinity of proteins onto nanoparticles can be obtained from first principles with minimum experimental input. We use a multiscale model of protein–nanoparticle interaction to evaluate adsorption energies for a set of 59 human blood serum proteins on gold and titanium dioxide (anatase) nanoparticles of various sizes. For each protein, we compare the results for 3D structures derived from experiments to those predicted computationally from amino acid sequences using the I-TASSER methodology and software. Based on these calculations and 2D and 3D protein descriptors, we develop statistical models for predicting the binding energy of proteins, enabling the rapid characterization of the affinity of nanoparticles to a wide range of proteins.||Funding Details:||European Commission Horizon 2020
