K-State biochemist contributes to article in Science magazine

er words, corresponding genes.

"Many of the serine protease genes have changed so much in the time of the divergence of these species that it was not very easy to identify the corresponding genes among them," Kanost said.

He also said most of the research at K-State was done by analyzing gene and protein sequences with computers using new information from the Aedes aegypti genome sequencing project and data stored at the National Center for Biotechnology Information, which is part of the National Library of Medicine.

"There's so much information that it requires help from computers to analyze and make sense of it," Kanost said.

From this research, scientists will know which genes and proteins to study in their efforts to stop the spread of diseases like malaria. The research will benefit scientists like Kristin Michel, also an author of the paper appearing in Science who will join K-State this fall as an assistant professor of biology. Kanost said Michel will be able to build further experimental research on the genomics work he and other researchers have done.
