Title: Integrative strategies exploiting evolution for structural prediction of protein assemblies
Abstract: The elucidation of the structure of macromolecular interactions is essential to better understand and modulate cellular functions and pathological situations. Our team is invested in the development of improved computational prediction methods, including the prediction of binding sites and the docking of proteins [1-2]. In complement, the integration of spatial constraints from Deep Mutation Scanning (DMS) experiments provide valuable tools for disrupting interactomes through the generation of edgetic and compensatory mutants. I will present how the evolutionary properties of interface structures can be combined with machine learning algorithms  and DMS experiments to provide improved structural mapping and functional dissection of conserved protein interaction networks [4-5].
