A probabilistic algorithm, PROTEAN, can incorporate multiple sources of uncertain data to estimate the 3-D structure of molecules and also predict a measure of the uncertainty in the estimated structure. Here, a parallel version of the model is presented which demonstrate good speedups on a 32-processor Stanford DASH and the multiprocessor, Silicon Graphics Challenge. An extension to the serial algorithm is also proposed, which enables it to handle a wider class of data. The potential for parallelization of the extended algorithm is discussed.
