Principle Investigator
University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center

Blaine Mooers is an Associate Professor of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology at OUHSC in Oklahoma City, OK, USA. He is also a member of the Stephenson Cancer Center and directs the Laboratory of Biomolecular Structure and Function. His lab uses X-ray crystallography, small-angle X-ray scattering, structure-based drug design, and molecular dynamics simulations to study the role of RNA structure in RNA editing. He also collaborates with colleagues to develop better anti-cancer compounds. He has been using Python and Jupyter to aid his data analysis for the past eight years. His research interests include developing software to improve computational workflows in structural biology. A Warren L. DeLano Memorial PyMOL Open-Source Fellowship funded some of this work. The National Institutes of Health currently funds his research. Contact him at blaine-mooers at ouhsc.edu.
