标题:Algorithms for Computational Protein Design
演讲人: 曾坚阳 University
时间: 2012-05-16 16:30-2012-05-16 17:30
地点:FIT 1-222

内容:

 I will first give some background on protein structure and the structure-based protein design protein problem. Then I will give a brief review on existing computational protein algorithms, and describe the applications of protein design in medicine and chemistry. Next, I will describe current challenges in the protein design problem. I will give some future work at the end of the talk.



人物介绍:

 Jianyang (Michael) Zeng will be a tenure-track assistant professor in the Institute for Interdisciplinary Information Sciences (IIIS), starting from fall 2012. He is currently a postdoctoral associate, advised by Dr. Bruce Donald (ACM and IEEE fellows) in the Department of Computer Science at Duke University and the Duke University Medical Center. He received his Ph.D. in Computer Science from Duke University in 2011. His primary research interests lie in Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, Structural Genomics and Systems Biology, and Protein and Drug Design. His other research interests include Machine Learning, Parallel and Distributed Computation, and Robotics. His doctoral work has been published in several leading conferences in Computational Biology and peer-reviewed journals in NMR-based protein structure determination methodology. He has been chosen as a Finalist for a Lane Fellowship in Computational Biology at Carnegie Mellon University.
