Presently member of the UMR-S 973, Therapeutic compounds in Silico

Scientific summary

In silico approaches can now assist the design of new therapeutics in various directions.

We focus on several aspects:

(i) the in silico design of peptides, including de novo peptide structure prediction

(ii) protein structure and function analysis and modeling, including protein structure modeling, side chain modeling, loop modeling, protein similarity search and pocket detection.

(iii) service to the community through the RPBS structural bioinformatics platform (http://bioserv.rpbs.univ-paris-diderot.fr)
