The title of Ignacio's project is:"Fast detection of structural relationships between proteins
Ignacio will investigate through bioinformatics approaches the structural relationship between peroxisomal proteins that are not annotated in novel organisms. During the last couple of years, his supervisor and collaborators have developed novel tools for a fast comparison between proteins using structural information, that enables to increase the signal-to-noise ratio when the sequence identity between proteins is low. This algorithmic improvement will permit to infer relationships between protein sequences against genomes in a faster way, closing the gap between hypothetical proteins that are not annotated and its peroxisomal homologs."
