Structural Neuroinformatics

Apply, create and maintain web-accessible databases of experimental and computational data, together with innovative software tools, essential for understanding the structure/function of proteins expressed in the nervous system in its normal function and in neurological disorders. Structural Neuroinformatics compresses data obtained by traditional structural bioinformatics of proteins expressed in the brain, combined with computational biophysics calculations performed on wild-type proteins together with proteins modified in relation to brain functioning/malfunctioning.
a) Receptors involved in chemoperception: Bitter taste receptors and olfactory receptors.
b) Development of multiscale approaches aimed at gaining insights into the structure function of receptors of neurobiological interest: GOMoDo server for modelling and docking of GPCR receptors and the coarse-grained/molecular mechanics (MM/CG) hybrid approach; MERMAID web-server for preparing and running CGMD simulations of membrane proteins.
c) Bridging in silico molecular description of synaptic receptors with a systems biology level description of the signaling mechanisms.
