Birth & future of multiscale modeling of macromolecules

Scientific sessions, PRBB CRG Conferences

Michael Levitt

Department of Structural Biology, Stanford University School of Medicine. Stanford, USA

Michael Levitt, from Stanford School of Medicine at Stanford University, the US, focuses on three different but inter-related areas of research: prediction of protein folding with emphasis on how the hydrophobic forces affect the pathway; prediction of protein structure from sequence without regard for the process of folding; and mesoscale modeling of large macromolecular complexes. 

He has been invited by Josefa González (IBE).
