“Prediction and Characterization of Protein-Protein Interfaces That Bind Intrinsically Disordered Protein Regions” , by Eric Wong, PhD Candidate, Gsponer Lab. Protein–protein interactions mediated by intrinsically disordered regions (IDRs) are differentiated from classical interactions between folded domains in terms of structure and function. Therefore, we developed a computational method specifically for the prediction of IDR-binding sites […]

“Human-yeast cross-species complementation of chromosome instability genes”, by Akil Hamza, doctoral candidate, Hieter Lab. Monday, September 30, 2019 at 2:30 in LSC#3 Abstract Humanized yeast offer a valuable resource with which to model and study human biology. Using cross-species complementation, model organisms like the budding yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, can be utilized to measure the impact […]
