David Konerding, Ph.D. (dek@konerding.com) is a Senior Engineer at Google. In his past lives, he was Senior Architect for Research Computing at Genentech, Computer Scientist in the Distributed Systems Department at the Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory. a postdoctoral scholar for Steven Brenner and Kimmen Sjolander at UC Berkeley, a programmer for the Computer Graphics Lab and a graduate student in the Doctoral Program of the Graduate Group in Biophysics at the University of California, San Francisco.

His current scientific interests include:

  • Research into Computational Grid Technologies, promoting the use of Grid Technologies in computational biology and chemistry
  • Functional characterization of anti-cancer nucleosides such as gemcitabine, cytarabine, and 5-fluoro-uracil
  • Use of NMR and molecular dynamics simulations to understand the energetics of protein/nucleic acid interactions
  • Structural and Functional Genomics
    • Rapid, accurate functional classification of structural genomics targets
    • Evaluation of sequence comparison techniques, including pairwise, profile, and iterative profile methods
    • Development of optimized target selection strategies
    • Recognition of ancient, conserved protein functionality between prokaryotic, archae, and eukaryotic genomes
  • Here are my scientific publications
