DBB researcher Arne Elofsson selected as an ISCB Fellow
Arne Elofsson, Professor in Bioinformatics at the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, has been selected as an ISCB Fellow in the class of 2023.
The International Society for Computational Biology (ISCB) has chosen Professor Arne Elofsson as one of this years Fellows with the following motivation:
“Honored for his many important contributions to the field of protein structure prediction. Among his many contributions are widely used prediction programs such as Pcons (automatic structure prediction), TOPCONS and OCTOPUS (membrane protein topology prediction), ProQ (assesses the quality of a protein structure) and studies of protein-protein interactions and evolution of protein structure.”
Based at the Science for Life Laboratory, Professor Elofsson’s research focusses on developing and using machine learning methods to better predict protein structures and interactions.
