Prof. Charlotte Deane

Prof. Charlotte Deane’s group works in the protein bioinformatics area. Currently the research focuses on understanding protein structure and improving our ability to model and design proteins.

To this end, the group is developing a rigorous definition of evolutionary relationships between proteins of differing structures using, in the initial stages, genomic data and building novel protein structure prediction software.

In a separate thread the group has been examining protein-protein interaction networks in terms of both their quality and use as a predictive tool.
