Comment Re:Understanding protein structure.. (Score 2, Interesting) 92

There are ways to obtain structure of proteins from DNA, just that they're not so good if a similar structure doesn't exist in the Protein Data Bank (http://pdb.org/ already, its called homology modelling. You have the protein sequence of an unknown structure then look for similiar sequences in the 20,000 known protein structures. That's why the more structures we add to the PDB makes it easier to find structures of unknown proteins.
