I work as an Expert Scientist at Molecular Partners in the F&A group where we assess the stability of designed ankyrin repeat proteins (DARPins). I coordinate the projects that involve Mass Spectrometry.
Before I started at Molecular Partners I did a PhD at the ETH in the group of Prof. Dr. Markus Aebi under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Markus Kuenzler. I worked there on a novel class of Ribosomally synthesized and post-translationally modified peptides (RiPPs) from the beautiful fungus Omphalotus olearius which we named the borosins.
In order to use protein sequences as inputs for deep learning models they need to be transformed into numerical descriptors. In this notebook I highlight four different ways to generate such numerical features from protein sequences.Read more
I build a Shiny application that can be used to interact with Protein Data Bank (PDB) and structural files in the web browser. The application won a grand prices at the Shiny programming contest.Read more
