CANCELLED Digging genomes and structuromes: towards “ab initio” computational biology

Professor Aleksandr Sahakyan ( MRC Weatherall Institute of Molecular Medicine, Radcliffe Department of Medicine, University of Oxford )


Due to unforeseen circumstances, Professor Sahakyan’s seminar (2pm Friday 6th Dec) is cancelled.

In this talk, I shall briefly present the past research track passing through quantum mechanical studies of biomolecules, to proteome-wide big data analyses and computational genomics. Next, the ongoing research in our group will be presented that builds upon the expertise on different levels of information processing in life (genome, transcriptome, proteins, small molecules), to develop self-consistent “first principles” models in biology. The immediate benefits and the targeted processes will be described covering different layers of the central dogma of biology, multigenic diseases and disease driver/passenger mutation predictions.
