CAPSID Research team
Computational Algorithms for Protein Structures and Interactions
The Capsid team develops algorithms and software to help study biological systems and phenomena from a structural point of view. In particular, the team aims to develop algorithms which can facilitate and improve the 3D modeling of large multi-component bio-molecular machines. While the team’s principal activity is algorithm and software development, it also tackles "real-world" biological problems through collaborations with the University of Lorraine and Nancy Hospital, and with other research teams from Inria, CNRS, INRA, INSERM, and international universities.
The team is common ("Equipe Projet Commun") to the CNRS, Inria, and the University of Lorraine, and is a research node of the Institut Français de Bioinformatique.
The team's activities focus on two main themes:
- computational modeling of protein-protein interactions (protein docking and molecular dynamics simulations)
- classifying and mining protein structures and protein interactions (knowledge discovery in biological databases).
