Topic:  "Pulling proteins apart on a computer: How and why?"


Research Summary:

Protein Folding. Minimalist lattice and off-lattice models provide rich insight characterizing the universal behavior of protein folding without suffering high computational costs. Monte Carlo simulations of designed minimalist proteins are being analyzed through novel projections to provide a better understanding of the connection between structure and protein dynamics.
