How many layers do GPT-3, AlphaFold 2, and DALL-E 2 have?

Unsuccessfully, I tried to find out the "depth" (definition below) in large neural networks such as GPT-3, AlphaFold 2, and DALL-E 2. Formally, my question is about their computational graph:...

How reliable is Alphafold2 for folding random-coil peptide

I have a peptide X of length 50aa. Alphafold2 predicted the structure which takes a helix form and with high average pLDDT score (>90). But during actual experiment (e.g. crystallography, ...

Can AlphaFold predict proteins with metals well?

There are certain proteins that contain metal components, known as metalloproteins. Commonly, the metal is at the active site which needs the most prediction precision. Typically, there is only one (...

Is AlphaFold just making a good estimate of the protein structure?

In the news, DeepMind's AlphaFold is said to have solved the protein folding problem using neural networks, but isn't this a problem only optimised quantum computers can solve? To my limited ...
