Active sites detection

Research area: 
Bioinformatics & Cheminformatics

Macromolecules such as proteins, DNA or RNA perform many different biological functions and so ensure most of the vital processes in living organisms. The protein function is determined by its interaction with other molecules and thus detection of regions where protein interacts and how the interaction is carried out finds application in many areas including drug development. In this field, we mostly focus on the detection of active sites from protein 3D structures.
