PhD project

Predicting Membership in Regulatory Protein Complexes

  • Supervised by Dr. Sascha Ott (Systems Biology) and Dr. Gyanendra Tripathi (Clinical Sciences Research Institute).
    We aim to use protein-protein interaction data to predict membership of regulatory complexes that bind to DNA.
  • Advisory Committee: Prof. Sudhesh Kumar (Warwick Medical School), Prof. David Wild (Systems Biology) and Dr. David Grainger (Biological Sciences).

MOAC mini-projects

  • Janus particles as building blocks for supra-colloidal structures. Supervised by Stefan Bon (Chemistry).
  • Evolution of Msx1 gene regulation. Supervised by Prof. Georgy Koentges (Systems Biology).
  • A bayesian approach to biological information retrieval. Supervised by Prof. David Wild (Systems Biology).
