I am Peter Uetz, currently an Associate Professor at the Center for the Study of Biological Complexity, Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, VA (USA).

My research group works on protein-protein interactions in viruses, bacteria, phage, and eukaryotes. We try to understand what proteins do in these organisms and how they assemble into complex biological entities.

In my limited spare time I work on reptile taxonomy, particularly the Reptile Database.

I am also interested in the relationship between science, society, and religion, given that superstition and anti-scientific notions are still rampant in most parts of the world.

My contributions to Wikipedia usually circle around these areas.

Occasionally I also edit articles on the German Wikipedia.
