MU receives high marks in international protein structure prediction competition

The University of Missouri has raised its stature in the international protein modeling community with its remarkable success in the Eighth Critical Assessment of Techniques for Protein Structure Prediction (CASP8), sponsored by the National Institute of Health. Results were released at the CASP8 conference held in Cagliari, on the island of Sardinia, Italy, in early […]

Protein structure prediction defines career

In 2001, Dong Xu, now the James C. Dowell computer science professor in the University of Missouri College of Engineering, and department chair, collaborated with then fellow researcher Ying Xu at Oak Ridge National Lab—now at the University of Georgia—to develop a set of computational tools for protein structure prediction and evaluation. Labeled PROSPECT, the […]

Book links informatics and fuzzy logic

Properties and behaviors of biological systems and objects often behave randomly, and analyzing them with bioinformatics programs can present certain limitations. A new book written by University of Missouri College of Engineering researchers offers insight into how fuzzy set theory and fuzzy logic can provide tools to aid in solving some of these problems. Dong […]
