Network-based analysis and prediction of function and folding rates from protein structures

Please note that the job is no longer active!

The applicant will be working on computational methods for structural bioinformatics. Protein structures can be represented as residue interaction networks (RINs), which consider single amino acids in the protein structure as nodes and connections as physico-chemical interactions. Our group has recently published a novel web server, RING (URL:, to construct RINs interactively from PDB structure files for visualization in Cytoscape. This project aims to extend the RING service by assessing sequence evolution and folding energetics, to be implemented as Cytoscape plugins. RINs analyzed with the help of network parameters will provide insights into the existence of common characteristics for these complex systems.

Please note that the full description may be available in the national language since some job boards have their own publication policy. Thank you for your understanding!
