Welcome to the Structural Bioinformatics Group!
Synopsis of Our Activities
Our goal is to undertake bioinformatics-related research and education with emphasis on structural bioinformatics to improve our understanding of living systems.
This understanding covers research into evolution, structure, function and interaction of proteins, disease relationships with focus on immunology and cancer. We accept the challenge to predict the results of in vitro experiments by in silico screening and simulation.
Along the way, we develop resources for the community, for example:
- the SuperPred webserver
- the Protox webserver
- the Transformer database
- the SuperPain database
- the Promiscuous database
- the SynSysNet database
More information about databases and applications developed in our group is available here.
