Computational Structural Biology Laboratory


With an interdisciplinary focus, research in our computational structural biology laboratory involves knowledge from multiple disciplines, such as physics, robotics, computer science, and biology. The long-term goal of our research is to understand the functional mechanisms of proteins, and to identify the roles of protein structure and dynamics in the realization of protein function. One of the primary ways in which this goal is being pursued is by developing novel computational methods that are inspired and transferred from research results in other disciplines, such as robotics.
