Modeling and understanding complex sequence-function relationships
Advances in high-throughput genetics now allow the effects of thousands of mutations to be measured simulateneously. How can we understand the complex patterns of genetic interaction revealed by these assays? I will showcase several computational tools to address this problem with applications to protein stability and function, transcription factor binding sites, RNA folding, and molecular evolution.
