Activities of the Bioinformatics Laboratory

 

 
  The activity of this Laboratory starts in 2001.

Research activity is focused on the application of bioinformatics and computational biology to investigate proteins, peptides, and nucleic acids for their structure/function relationships. Our work concerns molecular modelling of proteins and peptides, simulation of molecular interactions, sequence comparisons and analyses, development of computational tools and data bases, analysis of gene expression features by microarray results.

The keywords of our research activity are:

  • Main Topics: protein structure and function, gene expression, drug design, molecular modelling, ...

  • Methods: bioinformatics, computational biology, ...

  • Molecules of interest: wheat proteins and peptides, transglutaminase, interleukin, estrogens, sugar binding protein, prion protein, p53, growth factors, human eukaryotic initiation factor 5A (eIF-5A), ...

  • Biological/Pathological aspects: celiac disease, cancer, angiogenesis, protein synthesis, prion disease, galactosemia, genetic disease ...

You can find more information about our results under the Group Results page

New bioinformatics tools: this Group is also working to create new computational and bioinformatics tools for the study of structure/function of proteins and, more in general, biomolecules.

Please visit the Bioinformatics Services page for more information.
