WELCOME to NMR Science, home page of Frank Delaglio
This site provides some highlights of the work and play of Frank Delaglio.
In the scientific community, Frank is best known for being the developer of
NMRPipe, a software system for analysis of multidimensional Nuclear Magnetic
Resonance (NMR) spectral data. As of this year, NMRPipe has been cited more
than 6,000 times in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
Frank continues to participate in academic research on applications of NMR to
Multidimensional NMR is the primary method used to study the
structure and interactions of proteins and other biomolecules in solution.
This is important for several reasons. For one, most all functions
of living cells are performed by proteins and nucleic acids
interacting with other molecules, and many of these functions,
such as reproduction, or converting nutrients to usable forms of energy,
are common to all forms of cellular life. For another, many disease states
are associated with the function or misfunction of proteins, and as such,
most drugs work by interacting with a single protein or class of proteins.
Frank's commercial work emphasizes development of software applications
for science and industry, including imaging applications, molecular structure calculation,
automation, and NMR screening tools for one-dimensional and
two-dimensional spectral series analysis. These screening applications are
commonly applied to drug discovery and optimization.
Fellow pipers can have a look at the
NMRPipe Reference Page, a comprehensive list of programs,
functions, and scripts in NMRPipe.
Frank is now a Manager of NMR Software Products in the
Sciences Group of Agilent Technologies.
