Research Areas

RUBi’s research interests combine structural bioinformatics and comparative genomics. Research projects in the Unit range from drug discovery to databases to tool development. Various bioinformatics approaches are used to analyse transcription factor binding specificity, model protein structures, analyse protein structure - function relationships, and do protein-ligand and protein-protein docking as well as molecular dynamics calculations. Further, tool development and database construction are important aspects of the Unit's work.
