|Physicists, biologists and computer scientists meet together to understand proteins. If you want to know more about what (and how and why) we do, read on. |
Our research is focused on proteins. We try to combine insights from physics and biology to answer basic questions about the relation between the protein sequence and its structure and function. From physics we know that proteins are ruled by universal laws - at equilibrium they are at the free energy minimum. From biology we know that proteins come in families and studying relations in such families we can learn more about how changes in protein sequences influence their structures and functions.
