Double degree PhD programs in the Centre of Bioengineering
The Center of Bioengineering in cooperation with Centre de Recherche en Biologie cellulaire de Montpellier, FRANCE, invites students to the double degree PhD programs.
Each PhD student can selected own unique PhD program, which can assume a classic double degree PhD studies or the program wich includes mandatory short-term internships at the partner university.
Title of the direction: Development and application of bioinformatics tools for structural and functional annotation of proteomes
The growth of genomic data presents new challenges for scientists: making sense of millions of protein sequences requires systematic approaches and information about their 3D structure as well as about their evolutionary and functional relationships. Today, the growth of the sequencing data significantly exceeds the growth of capacities to analyze these data. In line with the dramatic growth of this information and urgent needs in new bioinformatics tools, our project deals with the development of new algorithms and processing chains required to analyze proteome data. Our focus will be on proteins containing tandem repeats, amylidogenic motifs and the other non-globular regions. Numerous studies have demonstrated the fundamental functional importance of such proteins and their involvement in diseases.
Keywords: Structural Biology, Bioinformatics, Precision medicine
Profile of candidate:
The work on this project will require skills of computer programming (C++, Java, Python) and (PHP, JS, HTML/CSS), knowledge of English and general principles of structural biology.
Heads of the direction:
Dr Andrey Kajava, Professor, PhD, head of INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC AND RESEARCH INSTITUTE OF BIOENGINEERING
Dr Uspenskaya Maya V., Professor, PhD, head of INTERNATIONAL SCIENTIFIC AND RESEARCH INSTITUTE OF BIOENGINEERING
