The Vakser Lab received a 3 year $1M award from the National Science Foundation "UKRI/BBSRC - NSF/BIO: Modeling of protein interactions to predict phenotypic effects of genetic mutations”. The project (a collaboration with the Imperial College, London) focuses on application of computational techniques to the development of a public resource incorporating structural modeling of proteins and protein assemblies with genetic amino acid variants and assessment of their functional impact.
