What we do

Our main goal at the Laboratory for Biomolecular Modeling is to understand the physical and chemical properties of complex biological systems, in particular their function with regard to structure and dynamics. To this end, we use and develop a broad spectrum of computational tools, fully integrated with experimental data. Multiscale simulations and dynamic integrative modelling are used to investigate the function of molecular assemblies, mimicking the conditions of the native cellular environment.
