Jianyi Yang's Research Group
Research
Our laboratory is focusing on algorithm development in the field of computational structural bioinformatics. We are especially interested in developing computational methods for the following research topics:
  • Protein structure and function prediction
  • RNA structure prediction
  • Protein structure alignment
  • Protein-ligand binding site prediciton
  • Protein-ligand docking and virtual drug screening
  • Machine learning-based prediction of protein structural attributes
