Computational simulations group
THE SCOPE OF THE RESEARCH
The group’s research is aimed at developing computational strategies for sampling large conformational changes of biomolecules, designing synthetic biopolymer sequences, self-assembly of biopolymers and protein nanomechanics. As the developer of the GoMARTINI model, Dr. Poma team designs new strategies for a multiscale tool. In collaboration with single-molecule force spectroscopy experts they study molecular interactions and long-range effects of single-point mutations on protein stability.
