“Insights from proteomics into cellular evolution and surprising disease models”
Don’t miss Edward Marcotte‘s talk next week at the PRBB!!
Coming from the Institute for Cellular and Molecular Biology (ICMB) at the University of Texas at Austin, USA, Marcotte will give a talk entitled “Insights from proteomics into cellular evolution and surprising disease models” next Tuesday November 22 in room 473.10 at 12h.
He has been invited by Gian Gaetano Tartaglia (CRG).
Marcotte works in systems and synthetic biology, studying the large-scale organization of proteins. He tries to reconstruct the ‘wiring diagrams’ of cells, learning how all proteins are associated into pathways, systems, and networks. He is interested both in discovering the functions of the proteins and in learning their underlying organizational principles. For that he uses both computation, and experimentation, especially high-throughput functional genomics and proteomics approaches.
