MIDST lab works on the dynamics of complex molecular systems. Our main interest is on the understanding of the working principles of molecular machines. We focus on organic self-assembled molecules in general, and on proteins in particular. View Research
We have developed network-based models to study the basic features contributing to structure/function relationships in these systems. These include:
Elastic network models in 1-D (GNM) and 3-D (ANM). ANM server
Identifying the control architecture underlying the adaptive mechanisms in these systems. See Services.
Optimal paths along the networks to identify key locations participating in their proper functioning.
System identification based on perturbation/response scanning (PRS) to study the near-equilibrium dynamics. PRS server
Prediction of relaxation times contributing to equilibrium fluctuations.
