We aim to decipher how biological macromolecules interact with each other to accomplish their function. We carry out computer simulations at different levels of resolution and complexity to achieve this goal.
Our group has been established in 2017 at the University of Los Andes (Bogotá, Colombia) in tandem with the Max Planck Institute for Medical Research (Heidelberg, Germany). Here, you will find information about who we are, our research interests, publications, and scientific activities.
March 7, 2018. Our article on the role of disulfide bonds as swich of blood proteins in collaboration with Philip Hogg and coworkers was published in Science Advances. Continue reading here.
March 5, 2018. Colloquium on membranes at the University of Los Andes in YouTube.
March 2, 2018. Our course on molecular dynamics simulations of biomolecules was a complete success. Thank you all for your participation.
