Welcome to the Theoretical Biology and Bioinformatics Laboratory!

Summary

Our activity is focused on the study of the three-dimensional structure of proteins and how this determines their function and interactions with their molecular partners.

Our objective is to get a deep insight of the general principles governing protein structure and function keeping in mind potential biomedical and biotechnological applications.
