Development of a novel method for modelling dynamic structures of membrane proteins

Summary

  • We aim to combine bioinformatic and molecular simulation techniques (by our collaborators) to develop a novel method for modelling the dynamic structure of membrane proteins. See a Japanese summary on the JST website.

Funding

  • Institute of Bioinformatics Research and Development, Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST-BIRD), Japan (2007-2010) “Development of a method for modelling dynamic structures of membrane proteins ” (Principal Investigator: Kenji Mizuguchi)
