Using Structure To Identify Protein-Protein And Drug Protein Interaction Networks

The presentation will describe the application of protein structure to predict protein-protein and protein-ligand interactions on a genome-wide scale. Protein networks and signaling pathways are constructed and described in structural terms yielding multiple potential targets for drug intervention. Drug leads are generated via structure alignment of target proteins with proteins that form a complex with small molecules where the structure is known. An integrated software package allows for the multi-directional navigation between small molecules, proteins and networks/pathways using large genomic, structural and chemical databases.
