IWR Colloquium on Computational Methods in Sciences

The IWR Colloquium serves as a platform for the interdisciplinary dialogue which characterizes the field of scientific computing. It is organized by Dr. Michael J. Winckler, Administrative Director HGS MathComp.

Every semester, members of the IWR and its affiliated institutions as wells as renowned international experts are invited to present their latest scientific results and discuss the upcoming challenges in the field of scientific computing.

We gladly invite you to join this interdisciplinary dialogue.

Prof. Huan-Xiang Zhou Florida State University, USA Electrostatics in Protein Structure and Action This talk will present a unifying theme among the various effects of protein charges and polar groups. Simple models will be used to illustrate basic ideas about electrostatic interactions in proteins, and these ideas in turn will be used to elucidate the roles of electrostatic interactions in protein structure, folding, binding, condensation, and related biological functions. In particular, I will examine how charged side chains are spatially distributed in various types of proteins and how electrostatic interactions affect thermodynamic and kinetic properties of proteins. Both important historical developments and recent experimental and theoretical advances in quantifying electrostatic contributions of proteins will be highlighted.
