(Received October 11, 1999)
We describe how potential parameters in a coarse graind model
of proteins can be optimized with use of available protein three
dimensional database. With this optimized potentials, we simulated
a three helix bundle protein and found that all trajectories
reach at the native structure within 1 microsecond. Interestingly,
a quasi-mirror image is successfully discriminated from the native
