DATAGENOM 3rd progress meeting - Scotland

The DATAGENOM project extends from genome analysis, through cloning, expression, enzyme production, screening and protein engineering, to the enzymatic production of chiral biomolecules.

The design of the project takes advantage of broad funnel-approach starting with innovative data-mining and processing of a large number of genes to ensure high flow-through in the process and rational selection of best enzyme candidates. The purpose of this progress meeting of the DATAGENOM project is to report on the progress made for the third period and remaining plans for the final steps and conclusion of the project. Also to define any required assistance between members to complete the work.

Application and implementation of probabilistic profile-profile comparison methods for protein fold recognition

Fold recognition is a method of fold detecting and protein tertiary structure prediction applied for proteins lacking homologues sequences of known fold and structure deposited in the Protein Data Bank. They are based on assumption that there is strictly limited number of different protein folds in nature, mostly as a result of evolution and due to basic physical and chemical constraints of polypeptide chains. Fold recognition methods are useful for protein structure prediction, evolutionary analysis, metabolic pathways and enzymatic efficiency prediction, molecular docking and drug design. Currently there are about 1300 discovered and characterized protein folds in SCOP and CATH databases. Every newly discovered protein sequence has significant chances to be classified into one of those folds. Many different approaches have been proposed for finding the correct fold for a new sequence and it is often useful to include evolutionary information for query as well as for target proteins.…


Structural genomics is the wide term which describes process of determination of structure representation of information in human genome and at present is limited almost exclusively on proteins. Although in common understanding genetic information means “genes and their encoded protein products”, thousands of human genes produce transcripts which are important in biological point of view but they do not necessarily produce proteins. Furthermore, even though the sequence of the human DNA is known by now, the meaning of the most of the sequences still remains unknown. It is very likely that a large amount of genes has been highly underestimated, mainly because the actual gene finders only work well for large, highly expressed, evolutionary conserved protein-coding genes. Most of those genome elements encode for RNA from which transfer and ribosomal RNAs are the classical examples. But beside these well-known molecules there is a vast unknown world of tiny RNAs that might play a crucial …

International Supercomputing Conference, Dresden, Germany

ISC has evolved into a high-powered international conference and exhibition that gives its attendees a global perspective on the cutting edge of HPC. As always, our conference program tackles hot HPC topics; this year, for example, we will have a panel session on “Green Computing”, a topic that was almost unknown just two years ago. ISC’s focus on future trends and developments can also be seen in this year’s keynote presentation by Prof. Dr. Satoshi Matsuoka of the Tokyo Institute of Technology, Japan, who will discuss “Everybody Supercomputes in the Next Generation Cyber-Science Infrastructure”.
I look forward to seeing you in Dresden.
