Currently available methods for the analysis of protein structure and dynamics integrate several scientific
disciplines. The students contribution is aimed towards combining aspects of first-principles calculations (ab
initio), classical (atomistic) molecular dynamics (MD) and network theory. Accent will be put on the
development and testing of network model(s) based on data from first-principles and MD simulations will be
accented in this work. Practical applications include identification of relevant amino acid residues in
processes such as ligand binding to enzymes, protein-protein interactions in cellular signalling cascades etc.
The goal is to yield qualitative and quantitative predictions in the field of proteomics (or molecular biology).
