Adam Godzik's Research Focus

Protein Structure and Function Prediction
Our research is focused on proteins, their sequences, structures and functions, and the relationships between the three. We try to combine insights from physics and biology to answer basic questions about these relations and to use these insights to predict protein structures and functions for uncharacterized proteins from their amino acid sequence.
From physics we know that proteins fold to structures minimizing their free energy. From biology we know that proteins come in families and that many similarities in structure and function are conserved across protein families. Combination of these two points of view helps us understand how changes in protein sequences influence their structures and functions. It also leads to the development of tools for predicting protein structure and function from amino acid sequence.
