Research Summary: Research is focused on computational and experimental techniques to discover, catalog, and functionally understand short linear protein motifs. Specific projects include: i) the continued improvement of the motif-x and scan-x web-tools, ii) the development of experimental methodologies to uncover kinase motifs, and iii) the analysis of motif signatures on viral protein primary structure toward the goal of elucidating mechanisms of viral propagation and developing therapeutic agents.
