Leveraging evolutionary information for protein structure and function production

More than 10 years after the human genome project, we still know only a fraction of the structures and functions of human proteins. My lab develops methods for very sensitive sequence search and alignment methods that are based on the pairwise comparison of sequence profiles. Such methods have led to remarkable improvements in protein structure and function prediction over the last 10 years.
