Group Information

The group focuses on understanding and predicting the macroscopic (experimentally observable) properties of biomolecular systems such as proteins, nucleic acids and lipid aggregates, in terms of the interactions between atoms. In particular our work concentrates on the development of tools (i.e. simulation software, atomic force fields, theoretical models and experimental techniques) that can be used to understand and predict the physico-chemical basis of interactions and dynamic processes within biomolecular systems. Specific areas of interest include structure prediction, protein and peptide folding, the self-assembly of protein/lipid complexes and the calculation of thermodynamic properties such as ligand binding affinities.
