Project Area C

Biochemistry and Biophysics

The understanding of proteins and DNA including their structure and behavior is the basis for research works in many disciplines. For the reason of the complexity and dynamics of these systems and their interactions with surrounding solvents it is necessary to consider long time periods and many particles. In the SFB 716 methods for the study of biopolymers in complex environments and processes are used and further developed.
