Protein structure prediction and homology modelling

BCH2123

Powerful methods exist to extract the maximal amount of information from a protein sequence. Students will pick a topic from the list below (or suggest a topic) and present the state of the art to the class. 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
Coevolution
Phylogenies
Prediction of secondary structure and disorder
Ab initio methods
CASP
Quaternary structure prediction
Membrane Proteins
