The Energy Landscape for Molecular Motors - the Kinesin Story

submitted by: icamvid

Jose Onuchic gives a talk at the RPP08 conference on the mechanics of molecular motors. The discussion includes:
1) The reflection of constraints of the molecular architecture the dynamical pathways during stepping
2) The role of rectified diffusional motion.

Dynamical Mean Field Theory Inspired Approaches

submitted by: icamvid

Eduardo Miranda gives a bird's eye view of dynamical mean field theory inspred approaches. He talks about the physical idea, achievements and current challenges with the original DMFT method. Then he talks about the extentions of the original method suc
