Dr. Karl Walker

Dr. Walker’s research has been in developing techniques or tools to analyze biological sequence data (protein amino acid sequences and DNA sequences) as well as imaging data such as PET scans, CT scans, and X-rays.  His research has primarily been in the area of computational protein structure comparison and prediction with emphasis in improving accuracy and prediction, but he has also contributed to other areas of bioinformatics research such as mass spectrometry proteomics, next-generation sequencing data analysis procedures, and the application of Artificial Intelligence in Bioinformatics.  He has also collaborated on bioinformatics research projects with researchers at ASU, UALR, UAMS, UAF, NCTR, and other institutions outside of Arkansas. He has published articles and delivered a number of presentations related to his research.
