A better idea for Life on Titan

Oh, I do love it when a theoretician comes in from the dugout and turns the game around.  Billy Beane did that for the Oakland baseball team (see… 693 more words

Image of the week: carbohydrate binding

Molecular recognition is an integral part of many biological reactions. This week’s image comes from a paper by Shoichi Tanimoto et al who use molecular dynamics and the 3D reference interaction site model (3D-RISM) method to examine the ion dependancy of carbohydrate binding in the carbohydrate-binding module family 36 (CBM36). 69 more words

Membrane Induced Folding of a cationic ß-hairpin

We recently developed a minimalistic coarse-grained model for lipids and peptides by using the Drude oscillator approach to model the  electrostatic component of Hydrogen bonds. With our models, we were able to simulate membrane induced folding of a cationic ß-hairpin, SVS-1 on… 93 more words
