Modeling protein-DNA interactions: Experimental and Computational Approaches
November 19, 2012
Join us for speaker Gary Stormo from Department of Genetics, Center for Genome Sciences at Washington University Medical School
“Modeling protein-DNA interactions: Experimental and Computational Approaches”
Abstract: Protein-DNA interactions are an essential part of the regulation of gene expression. New experimental methods have greatly increased the amount of data available that can be used to develop quantitative models for the specificity of transcription factors. This talk will described new computational approaches that take advantage of the new experimental technologies to provide improved models of specificity and aid in the design of proteins with novel specificity.
