Research Interest
Many proteins and protein regions fail to fold into 3D structure and yet carry out biological function.  Dr. Dunker uses both computational and experimental methods to discover sequence-function relationships for these intrinsically disordered proteins and regions. Computational methods include data mining and various neural network and support vector machine predictors.
