Interaction networks in protein structures
Otto-Warburg-Laboratorium - Bioinformatik / Strukturelle Proteomforschung (Dr. Michael Lappe)
MPI für molekulare Genetik, Berlin
SummaryThe central topic of the Bioinformatics / Structural Proteomics group is the analysis and prediction of protein structures via networks. Methods are developed to reconstruct the 3D structure from such networks with the aim to identify the determining contacts in these structure networks. This interdisciplinary work provides potential application in protein and drug design.
