Simulating Chemistry using Quantum Computers

Nice preprint from the Harvard group introducing quantum computing for chemical simulation, including a great deal about AQC and how to apply it to such systems, e.g. lattice protein folding and small molecules. Includes references to some experimental and simulation work done at D-Wave (write-up for that in progress).

    So does this mean there is a quantum computer (theoretical I presume) that could be given a primary gene sequence, and spit out a tertiary protein structure? That would be awesome enough, but what about the reverse? Give a desired 3D protein, and have it work out the gene sequence to produce it??

    Or am I just having a BioGeek wet dream?
