But the chemists basic strategy for analyzing the pathways of protein folding must still be the same as that for analyzing a simple chemical mechanism: characterize all the stable and metastable states on (and off ) the reaction pathways and the transition states that link them.
Simple models of protein folding and of non--conventional drug design
The above simple considerations testify to the fact that a combined attack of the protein folding problem and of drug design through the interdisciplinary efforts of biologists, chemists and physicists is likely to be a strategy which has a good chance of being succesful.

Simple coarse-grained potentials, such as Elastic Network Models, provide an efficient description of a protein structure by connecting atoms or residues within a certain distance with identical harmonic potentials (Tirion, 1996).
