Structural Biology, Protein Crystallography.
We are Structural Biologists interested in the relationship between the function and structure of proteins. We use X-ray crystallography to determine the structures of our molecules of interest, and various computational tools to analyze these structures. Some of our projects include:
- Mechanisms of complex human disease
- Structure and function of Myovirus phage CBA120 tailspike proteins
- Giardia Drug Targets – structure, function and inhibitor design.
- The pyruvate phosphate dikinase and Enzyme I molecular machines: Spare parts and swiveling domain mechanism.
