About the Lab
The research in the lab focuses on computational modeling of biological macromolecules and their assemblages as well as predicting biophysical quantities associated with them. One of the primary roles of the lab is to develop and maintain the popular software package DelPhi, which calculates electrostatic potentials and energies of systems comprised of biological macromolecules. We are also interested in modeling disease-causing missense mutations, pKa's of amino acids and nucleic groups, and pH-dependence of stability and binding.
