Modeling protein-DNA interactions: experimental and computational approaches
Protein-DNA interactions are an essential part of the regulation of gene expression. New experimental methods have greatly increased the amount of data available that can be used to develop quantitative models for the specificity of transcription factors. This talk will described new computational approaches that take advantage of the new experimental technologies to provide improved models of specificity and aid in the design of proteins with novel specificity.
