The main subject of interest in our laboratory is the study of the relationship among sequence, structure, and function in proteins and nucleic acids. Our research can be divided in two major topics:

the study of the sequence-structure relationship
(application -> structure prediction)
the study of the structure-function relationship
(application -> function prediction)

Therefore, anything related to the configuration (sequence) and conformation (structure) in atomic systems of proteins and nucleic acids, and the interaction of these with other elements (function) is of our major interest.
