Professor Sir Tom Blundell of University of Cambridge would deliver the distinguish lecture, which would be the third in Hyderabad Lecture Series, at University of Hyderabad in Hyderabad on Monday at 3 pm. The lecture would be on ‘Genomics, Structural Biology: Fighting Resistance in Cancer and TB’.
Tom Blundell's research for the past four decades combines structural biology, structural bioinformatics and structure-guided drug discovery.
Most of his work has been on multi-component protein assemblies, first focusing on growth factor relationships with receptor tyrosyl kinases. Over the past decade he has extended his work to understanding DNA damage repair signaling, focusing initially on homologous recombination and Non-Homologous End Joining (NHEJ) recombination.
Tom Blundell has developed widely used software in structural bioinformatics, including databases databases of three-dimensional structures of proteins (CREDO, PICCOLO, BIPA), software for sequence-structure (fold) recognition (FUGUE) and software for comparative modeling (COMPOSER, MODELLER, ORCHESTRAR, RAPPER).
