Hello world. Bio says the important things. I'm a PhD student using biophysical techniques and computational simulation of molecular systems to understand various aspects of protein behavior and regulation. I always choose FOSS tools where possible in my work. Now lets talk *nix and science!



@cbrambley Sounds like a fascinating PhD; is that simulation the type of thing where you figure out the physical way they interact and fit into 'keys' on other proteins and how they fold?

@penguin42
Protein folding studies are definitely a common focus of molecular simulation. My work though is more geared towards how a protein of interest responds structurally to different treatments. Typically we focus on the protein's preferred substrate so we might be able to better understand the biophysical nature of enzyme-substrate interaction.

@cbrambley Welcome to mastodon! 👋 May you always find something interesting new.... 🙌

@cbrambley
I'm a non biologist, but one of my favorite project is #OpenSourceInsulin

quite difficult it is.
