Quantum Algorithms for the Prediction of Two- and Three-Dimensional Biomolecular Structures

The arrival of larger quantum computers could be beneficial to numerous fields, including drug discovery. Three quantum algorithms, which could one day help discover new life-saving drugs, will be investigated in this research project. The first algorithm will reduce the computational load placed on quantum computers when estimating the electronic energy of molecules. As for the other two algorithms, they will be used to make protein folding and RNA folding predictions. Conducting this research project will benefit Anyon Systems Inc. since it will provide the company with a set of cutting-edge quantum algorithms. The algorithms will also enable the company to test the performance of its new superconducting quantum
