Bioinformatician helps archaeogeneticists search for primordial organisms
Miloš Musil from the Department of Information Systems at FIT created a new web application that helps scientists with ancestral reconstruction. He developed the unique tool in collaboration with scientists from the International Clinical Research Centre of St. Anne's University Hospital and researchers from the Loschmidt Laboratories at Masaryk University. There, they use the application to study molecular evolution and search for ancient proteins that no longer exist today. These can help, for example, in pharmacology, medicine or biotechnology.
