Research Overview

This is a protein biochemistry/molecular biology group involved in the verification of sequence-analytic hypotheses to identify functional regions of proteins and for the generation of experimental data that can be used for the development of new prediction tools. With a set of standardized assays (enzymology, post-translational modifications, identification of protein substrates of enzymes/receptors/ transporters, etc.), our biochemical lab aims to bridge the gap between theoretical predictions on the one hand, and cell biology and genetics research on the other. What is truly unique about the group is our integrated approach. Scientists from multiple disciplines (molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry and bioinformatics) work closely together to fully understand different aspects of the inherently complex systems intrinsic to living organisms.
