Presentations should be based on 3-5 recent papers and should not be closely linked to methods being used in the student’s thesis project. Subject choices will be discussed with the instructor prior to approval.

 Sequence alignments
Prediction of secondary structure and disorder
Ab initio methods
Quaternary structure prediction
Membrane Proteins
