" Computational biology reveals mechanisms of protein-DNA binding"
Abstract: With the availability of a large amount of experimentally solved three-dimensional structures of protein-DNA complexes and DNA sequence data from high-throughput binding assays, we developed computational methods that identify features of nucleic acids and proteins that are essential for protein-DNA binding. This talk will introduce machine learning and deep learning approaches for answering biological questions that relate to molecular recognition and gene regulation. These methods are also applicable to RNA and small molecules, thereby showcasing possibilities that computational biology as a field provides.
