Computational Analysis Enables Breakthrough in Biomolecular Dynamics

April 20, 2022

A new study with data analyses from Berkeley Lab computational researchers helps broaden the physical understanding of biomolecular assembly by tracking motion at high resolution and defining a general procedure for using in situ visualization and machine learning to explore such dynamics. This research characterizes the “energy landscape” for protein orientation and shows how that energy landscape controls the rate of motion between different orientations. Read More »
