PhD Defence: From data to knowledge: a bioinformatics approach to study the role of proteins and their modifications in network biology

To understand complex diseases like cancer, it is important to study how cells function and communicate with each other and their environment. While most biological studies are being performed at DNA and RNA levels, proteins are actually responsible for cellular function, growth and maintenance. In this PhD thesis I studied the role of proteins and post-translational modifications on melanoma progression and the regulation of these proteins on resistance to therapy. Different aspects of proteomics data analysis are described like statistics and data visualization.
