Computational modeling and high-throughput experiments for direct identification of gene functions

While genomes can be rapidly sequenced, many gene functions remain unknown. We developed an integrated computational modeling and high-throughput experimental approach to directly identify gene functions. This approach does not rely on sequence homology or shared patterns (e.g., co-occurrence or co-expression) with other known genes, and thus provides opportunities to discover enzymatic or transport functions for uncharacterized and/or unique genes.

All QBio sponsored talks take place on Wednesdays at 2:00 p.m. in the 3rd floor Orchard View room of the Discovery Building unless otherwise noted. Talks are open to the public. Access to the room is via the elevator behind Aldo’s Cafe in the Northeast corner of the building.
