Molecular evolution is an area investigating the changes in DNA
and protein molecules. Evolutionary events help us gain insights
into the history and present of the biological events.
Our research aims to understand evolutionary history of proteins.
The conservation profiles of proteins shed light into their
function, potential partners and the evaluation of human variants
in the disease context. We are specifically interested in
eukaryotic signal transduction initiated by G protein-coupled
receptors. Moreover, we develop novel approaches and tools in
phylogenetics to increase the performance of amino acid
substitution prediction. Our studies help identifying mutations
causing rare diseases. For more information, please visit our lab
