Khan and Colleagues Publish Science Paper

Dec 03, 2013

Zia Khan, assistant professor of computer science at UMIACS and member of the Center for Bioinformatics and Computational Biology (CBCB), is the first author of a new study published in the journal Science.

The research addresses primate evolution and gene regulation. The study’s authors used quantitative mass spectrometry to compare protein expression levels to transcript expression levels and found that protein levels evolve under stronger constraint than messenger RNA (mRNA) levels.

The study is featured in a more detailed perspective in the same Science issue.
