Research profile

Structure and function predictions for proteins important in human disease, in particular uncharacterised transmembrane proteins; Systems biology analysis of gene expression data; Evolutionary analysis of gene expression profiles.

Current research activities

  • Structure / function analysis and evolutionary history of CLCAs, a novel enzyme family;
  • Structure / function analysis of a novel family of putative transmembrane receptors;
  • Studying expression profiles of drug targets;
  • New methods for pathway analysis of gene expression data: development of the GSEA method (gene set enrichment analysis)
