“DECODING MOLECULAR MECHANISMS OF CELLULAR FUNCTION WITH COMPUTATIONAL AND HYBRID APPROACHES”

 

Summary: My talk will cover the main research topics of my laboratory as well as our future plans and goals. We aim to identify the associations between key components on genome, epigenome and protein levels, and to understand how the perturbation of these components can lead to disease. To accomplish this, we develop and apply machine learning, molecular modeling, molecular dynamics simulation methods, and use experimental data to guide us in designing new hybrid approaches. Such methods can provide a predictive power for the behavior of the system in response to disease and, in some cases, offer experimental leads.
