Computational Biomolecular Research

The Centre of Excellence for Computational Biomolecular Research (BioExcel) is operating towards advancement and support of the HPC software ecosystem in the life science domain. Research and expertise covers structural and functional studies of the main building blocks of living organisms (proteins, DNA, membranes etc.) and techniques for modelling their interactions ranging from quantum to coarse-grained models up to the level of a single cell. Work in the centre is focused on

Improving the performance and scalability of major simulation packages for more efficient usage of HPC resources

Improving the usability of existing and devising new workflows and environments with associated data integration

Competence-building among both academia and industry through extensive training programs and promotion of best practices.

BioExcel: Electronic Interaction Phenomena: Proton Dynamics and Fluorescent Proteins

Proton Dynamics Mass spectrometry has revolutionized proteomics, i.e. the investigation of the myriad of protein/protein interactions in the cell. By using a very small sample content of proteins (usually in the micromolar concentration), a powerful implementation of the technique, so-called ionization/ion mobility mass spectrometry (ESI/IM-MS), can measure stoichiometry, shape and subunit architecture of protein and protein complexes in the gas phase.
