Professor Marc Wilkins
Marc Wilkins is currently a Professor of Systems Biology at the University of New South Wales and is the director of the Systems Biology Initiative and the Ramaciotti Centre for Genomics. Marc coined the term proteome in 1994, whilst developing the concept as a PhD student at Macquarie University, Sydney; this being a generalisation of the concept of the genome to encompass the set of all proteins that can be produced through the genome, through alternative splicing and post-transcriptional modification of messenger RNA.
Marc’s research interests involve the proteomics of protein-protein interactions and systems biology. Specifically, his research focuses on the dynamics of protein-protein interaction networks, and the role that gene expression and protein post-translational modifications play in the control of protein interactions and thus delivery of cellular function in yeast and human cells.
