The set of all known proteins of all biological organisms is growing rapidly due to improved sequencing technologies, but little is known about most proteins other than their amino acid sequence deduced from DNA sequencing. Isabelle is analyzing patterns in the structural domains of proteins to better understand their function and to determine relationships between protein families.
