Welcome to the group of Protein Design and Self Assembly
Our group focuses on dissecting the physical principles of protein self-assembly. While conceptually simple, the phenomenon of self-assembly entails a fine equilibrium of a number of physical properties, which determine the dynamics and structure of the assembly architecture. We combine computational de novo protein design with protein production, in vitro model substrates, and biophysical methods to systematically investigate the interplay between different types of interactions in the assembly process of protein-based materials.
