Molecules on the move
GRA Eminent Scholar Jeff Skolnick and his colleagues at Georgia Tech are using large-scale computer simulations to identify key factors affecting how molecules move within cells. Understanding in detail inactions in the crowded environment within cells is a step that may lead to vital information for developing new therapeutic drugs and for better understanding how disease states develop. The researchers hope ultimately to develop a complete simulation of cellular processes. For a detailed look at their work, see John Toon’s article “Traffic in Cells” in Georgia Tech’s Research Horizons magazine (p 20-21).
