Answer: D
Notes:

Explanation: About AlphaFold:

  • AlphaFold is an AI-based protein structure prediction tool. It is based on a computer system called deep neural network.
  • It uses processes based on ‘training, learning, retraining and relearning’. By using this method, AlphaFold has now predicted the structures of the entire 214 million unique protein sequences deposited in the Universal Protein Resource (UniProt) database.
