NYU Professor Named to Structural Bioinformatics' Scienctific Advisory Board

Premium

SAN DIEGO, Calif.--Structural Bioinformatics here has named Ruben Abagyan, from New York University's Department of Biochemistry and Courant Institute of Mathematics, to its scientific advisory board. He has previously worked at the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Heidelberg and received grants for his work in bioinformatics and homology modeling. Abagyan's current research is directed toward the structural and functional characteristics of biological sequences, protein modeling by homology, protein design, prediction of protein association, ligand-protein docking, and peptide folding. Structural Bioinformatics said this background "perfectly complements" the company's main business focus of elucidating protein structural information.
