Methods and Case Studies in Structural Biology

The determination of macromolecular structures by crystallography and Cryo-EM forms the basis of today's molecular biology and biochemistry. However, these structures cannot be obtained from experimental data aloneā€”a model is required to interpret the measured images, and hence, understanding the underlying principles is crucial. Obtaining this understanding is the driving force behind our work, as it will allow us to improve all known structures and solve more challenging ones in the future.
We employ any means necessary to solve a problem, from lab work to software development. Most of our research is driven by practical challenges and often collaborative in nature. These are our current main research topics:
