  1. 1. Applications of Structural Bioinformatics for the Structural Genomics Era

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marian Novotny; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : Bioinformatics; structural bioinformatics; fold comparison; left-handed helix; docking; solvent-accessible surface area; register shift; X-ray crystallography; Bioinformatik;

    Abstract : Structural bioinformatics deals with the analysis, classification and prediction of three-dimensional structures of biomacromolecules. It is becoming increasingly important as the number of structures is growing rapidly. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Design and Structure Prediction of Protein Oligomers

    University dissertation from Department of Biochemistry and Structural Biology, Lund University

    Author : Robert Lizatovic; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; virus capsids; coiled coils; molecular replacement; symmetry; Rosetta; protein design; structure prediction;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in English Proteins are a class of biological macromolecules that perform countless fundamental and diverse functions in living organisms. Chemically speaking, they are polymers built out of monomeric units called amino acids. All biological proteins are constructed out of 20 different amino-acid types. READ MORE

  3. 3. A Study in RNA Bioinformatics Identification, Prediction and Analysis

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Eva Freyhult; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; RNA; bioinformatics; secondary structure; structure prediction; dynamic programming; energy landscape; homology search; sequence logo; tRNA; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Theoretical chemistry Bioinformatics; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Teoretisk kemi Bioinformatik;

    Abstract : Research in the last few decades has revealed the great capacity of the RNA molecule. RNA, which previously was assumed to play a main role only as an intermediate in the translation of genes to proteins, is today known to play many important roles in the cell in addition to that as a messenger RNA and transfer RNA, including the ability to catalyze reactions and gene regulations at various levels.

  4. 4. Orphan Genes Bioinformatics Identification and properties of de novo created genes

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Walter Basile; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; bioinformatics; de novo; orphans; evolutionary genetics; biokemi med inriktning mot bioinformatik; Biochemistry towards Bioinformatics;

    Abstract : Even today, many genes are without any known homolog. These "orphans" are found in all species, from Viruses to Prokaryotes and Eukaryotes. For a portion of these genes, we might simply not have enough data to find homologs yet. READ MORE

  5. 5. Prediction of zinc-binding sites in proteins and efficient protein structure description and comparison

    Abstract : A large number of proteins require certain metals to stabilize their structures or to function properly. About one third of all proteins in the Protein Data Bank (PDB) contain metals and it is estimated that approximately the same proportion of all proteins are metalloproteins. READ MORE
