Areas of Research

Biophysics

The research in the lab focuses on computational modeling of biological macromolecules and their assemblages as well as predicting biophysical quantities associated with them. One of the primary roles of the lab is to develop and maintain the popular software package DelPhi, which calculates electrostatic potentials and energies of systems comprised of biological macromolecules. We develop algorithms, software and web servers to predict the effects associated with human DNA mutations and then to identify small molecules (potential drugs) that can mitigate the disease-causing effects. We are very active in area of Personalized Medicine and Precision Diagnostics.
