Download slides (pdf 624 KB) My group works on developing bioinformatics tools that support the work of life science colleagues. With biochemist Larry Wackett, we have developed the University of Minnesota Biocatalysis/Biodegradation Database (http://umbbd.ahc.umn.edu/). We use that database to develop a tool to predict biodegradation pathways (http://umbbd.ahc.umn.edu/predict/). We also, with developmental biologists Stephen Ekker and Scott Fahrenkrug, are developing the Vertebrate Secretome and CTT-ome Database (http://www.secretomes.umn.edu/). We use this database to select targets for vertebrate functional genomics.
