Caption: Rice University researchers have determined that the energy landscape involved in the long-term evolution of proteins is essentially the same as that involved in the folding process that takes as little as microseconds. Authors of the new work are, from left, Faruck Morcos, Ryan Cheng, Nicholas Schafer, Peter Wolynes and José Onuchic.
