Molecular dynamics simulation of large-scale transitions at membranes and interfaces 

Principal Investigators: 
Summary: 

How large-scale, cooperative structural transitions of biological systems are controlled by small-scale, mo- lecular interactions is far from fully understood. In this new subproject, we aim to derive the molecular and energetic determinants of two large-scale transitions: (i) membrane fusion induced by viral fusion proteins, and (ii) assembly of amphiphilic hydrophobin proteins at the water surface.
