Biographie
My name is Advait Maybhate. I am a grade 12 student and a SHAD fellow from Waterloo, Ontario. My passions include computer science, the natural sciences and mathematics. In the past, I have worked as a software intern at Christie Digital where I improved their camera calibration tools for projection mapping. My latest love is to compete in hackathons, recently winning the CockroachDB prize at Hack the North for a software application that can summarize lectures using speech-to-text technology. Additionally, I love to compete in long distance sports, specifically cross country running and nordic skiing, in which I was the 2016 regional champion. I am also the school champion for the Pascal, Cayley and Galois math contests, run by the University of Waterloo. Currently, I am the president of science club and leader of computer science club at my school where I deliver lessons on several concepts, e.g. recursion, evolution, time complexity, etc., and organize experiments. I competed at CWSF last year, where I created a novel algorithm to identify DNA motifs, winning a silver medal. This year, I continued in the field of bioinformatics, tackling the challenge of identifying protein-ligand binding sites.

3DPocket - Computational Prediction of Ligand Binding Sites in Proteins
Défi:Innovation
Catégorie:Sénior
Région:Waterloo-Wellington
Ville:Waterloo, ON
École:Sir John A. Macdonald S.S.
Sommaire:Identifying the binding sites of ligands, which bind to proteins, is a crucial task. Understanding the shape and size of such binding sites allows for the creation of drugs that bind to these binding sites, preventing other ligands, potentially stopping the spread of diseases such as HIV. This project proposes a new geometry-based algorithm to tackle the challenge of identifying ligand binding sites within proteins.
