Virtual Cell Model
A model to study configuration changes of the cells and their components in response to mechanical deformations or forces.
Active Particles and Active Matter
Low Reynolds number swimmers are on interest of both physics and biology. Collective motions of these particles introduce the new field of active matter.
Translocations through nanopores
Translocations of both macromolecules and small particles (ions or water molecules) through the
Structure and elasticity of DNA has been investigated on various length scales.
Understanding the nature of the interactions that stabilize protein structures and govern protein folding mechanisms is a fundamental problem of molecular biology. The extreme complexity of the problem due to the numerous numbers of interacting atoms has made the study of the problem practically impossible in the atomic scales. The simplified coarse-grained models introduce a...
There are a bunch of old projects which are not continuing on the group right now, but there are still interests. Many of them are alive on the new groups of our group's alumni and we are collaborating on some.
