A new approach to reconstructing protein evolution

One angle scientists have taken to explore how protein functions arise is to trace family evolution and relatedness, which is difficult. In eLife, Roman Sloutsky of UMass Amherst and his former advisor Kristen Naegle, now at UVA, propose an unusual, new and more accurate way to trace how proteins diverged over time. "It can yield powerful insights into the relationship between protein sequence, structure and function for that family," he says.

A new approach to reconstructing protein evolution

There are an estimated 20,000 to 30,000 proteins at work in cells, where they carry out numerable functions, says computational molecular biologist Roman Sloutsky at the University of Massachusetts ...
