Our group's research focuses on developing and utilizing statistical mechanics theories, bioinformatic, and simulation methods to explain and predict the behavior of biologically interesting macromolecules. The current research program is aimed at the understanding of the molecular mechanisms and bioinformatic studies of protein folding, stability, and binding of ligands, peptides, and DNA. The long-term goal of the proposed research is to elucidate the relations between the sequence, structure, and function of proteins and to uncover the molecular mechanisms underlying different diseases. This will be accomplished by designing simple (yet realistic) models and by developing statistical mechanics theories and bioinformatic tools.
