Integrative Modeling of Biomolecular Complexes

  • Title: Integrative Modeling of Biomolecular Complexes
  • Presenter: Assoc. Prof. Ezgi Karaca from Dokuz Eylül University

  • Language: English
  • Abstract: Life is operated at the nanometer scale through orchestrated communications of biomolecules. By dissecting this nanoworld, we can acquire a fundamental understanding of how biological macromolecules function, how they are related to disease-linked pathways and how to design drugs targeting them. This understanding led to the birth and rise of Structural Biology, the study of the structures of biomolecules and their complexes at atomic resolution. In this webinar, Dr. Karaca will briefly introduce the basic Structural Biology techniques and the data types acquired with them. This will be followed by a comprehensive explanation of how to incorporate Structural Biology data into biomolecular simulations, especially into docking. Finally, she will talk about her latest research on integrative modeling, recently published in Nature Methods. For more, please see:
