Dr Sarah Teichmann is based at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology at the University of Cambridge. In the post-genomic era, high-throughput methods are providing us with a deluge of data about genes and proteins. What knowledge about biology does this new data hold? Dr Teichmann is working to gain a better understanding of how cells and organisms work so that we can draw on the evolutionary information inherent in the growing number of protein structures. This talk will explain how computational analysis of genomic information reveals fundamental principles of gene and protein interactions.
