Henrike Indrischek

Exchange graduate student, Pharmacology

Exchange graduate student from the Institute for Bioinformatics, University of Leipzig, Germany

Henrike received her BS and MS in Biochemistry at the University of Leipzig, Germany.

Currently, she is a PhD student in the groups of Peter F. Stadler and Sonja J. Prohaska


Research Description

Henrike studies the evolution of different groups of proteins using computational methods. This involves, among other things, high-quality protein annotation, building of phylogenetic trees, and detection of important residues with other phylogenetic methods.

In a collaborative project with my lab, she studies the evolution of arrestins in vertebrates. Based on these results, she proposed to study the interaction of clathrin and arrestin in my lab during an internship this summer. Here, she uses classical protein biochemistry methods to purify clathrin cages, express arrestins, and carry out binding assays.
