Description:

Prions are infectious protein particles associated with various neurodegenerative diseases in humans and animals. This problem space introduces basic skills in protein structure and sequence exploration that can be used to analyze some unusual properties of prions, and develop testable hypotheses that can be explored through these tools. Students will be challenged to use a systems-biology approach to link structure, evolution and function of proteins.
