Plants and animals independently evolved multicellularity. To orchestrate the growth and development of their tissues and organs, both kingdoms of life use hormones. The research group investigates how plant receptor proteins sense a growth-promoting steroid hormone by combining structural biology and biochemistry with genetics utilizing the model plant Arabidopsis thaliana. more
The properties of peptides and proteins (polypeptide chains) are fundamentally important in biochemistry as well as many other aspects of chemistry. The foundation of any quantitative predictions for such properties by computational means is a reliable determination of the structure and dynamics of specific chains. The present article demonstrates the reach and accuracy of current numerical methods for this problem that are based only on the "first principles" of quantum mechanics. more
