Abstract

this paper is to discuss the analogies as well as some recently developed methods to apply our approach to proteins: there we use Dill's HP - model of lattice proteins and apply a novel fast and efficient folding rule. There are remarkable similarities as both landscapes are rugged and structure formation largely depends on local interactions such that it is possible to accomplish a characterisation of the mapping similar to the RNA case. 1 Introduction
