    Learning biophysically-motivated parameters for alpha helix prediction

    Our goal is to develop a state-of-the-art protein secondary structure predictor, with an intuitive and biophysically-motivated energy model. We treat structure prediction as an optimization problem, using para...

    On consensus biomarker selection

    Recent development of mass spectrometry technology enabled the analysis of complex peptide mixtures. A lot of effort is currently devoted to the identification of biomarkers in human body fluids like serum or ...

    Refining intra-protein contact prediction by graph analysis

    Accurate prediction of intra-protein residue contacts from sequence information will allow the prediction of protein structures. Basic predictions of such specific contacts can be further refined by jointly an...

    Identification of hot regions in protein-protein interactions by sequential pattern mining

    Identification of protein interacting sites is an important task in computational molecular biology. As more and more protein sequences are deposited without available structural information, it is strongly de...
