Our research is focused on analysis and predictions of function and interactions of biological macromolecules using various computational and bioinformatical methods. Through the use of modern computational methods it is possible to perform large-scale simulations of biological macromolecules such as proteins and nucleic acids. We are especially interested in the energetics of ligand binding and biological catalysis. Current projects include studies of protein synthesis on the ribosome and ligand binding to G-protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs) and enzyme targets.

In our work, we have developed the Molecular Dynamics program package Q.
