Bioinformatics of protein bound water
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2005)
Protein-bound water molecules are important components of protein structure, and therefore, protein function and energetics. Here we present a semi-automated computational approach for identifying conserved (i.e. structurally ...
Molecular and genetic studies of iron homeostasis in Arabidopsis
(University of Missouri--Columbia, 2006)
Iron is an essential element for plant survival. However, in excess, it is deleterious to the organism. In the present thesis we describe a functional genomic approach and a mutant screen directed towards increasing our ...
