Searching for novel protein domains: A bioinformatic analysis of whole proteomes

Project: Research

Project Description

The functional annotation of the set of proteins encoded by a whole genome (the ''proteome'') is a crucial component of genome research. The aim of this project is to extend the functional and structural annotation of large protein databases by identifying novel protein domain families and building a novel domain library. Our approach is semi-automated and fast, thanks to executeion in the fastest parallel supercomputer in Australia available at the Victorian Partnership for Advanced Computing. Our preliminary data demonstrates that our method is feasible.
