Hyrdation Dynamics and Time Scales of Coupled Water-Protein Fluctuations

submitted by: icamvid

Dongping Zhong gives a talk at the ICAM 2007 conference about dynamical ordered water (conformational flexibility) and the dynamics of protein-water interactions.

Biomolecular Dynamics and Function

submitted by: icamvid

Samir Kumar Pal gives a talk at the ICAM 2007 conference about simulations of biomolecular dynamics and function

An Accelerated View of Functional Dynamics in Bio-Molecular Systems

submitted by: icamvid

Phineus Markwick gives a talk at the RPP08 conference long time-scale MD simulations of protein dynamics. He discusses experiments using dipolar coupling to probe the protein dynamics. From these he shows how to build a simulation.

Dynamics and Allostery of Enzymes

submitted by: icamvid

Susan Taylor gives a talk at the RPP08 conference that includes the challenges and opportunities of enzymes as well as the history of them.

Deep-Ocean Metagenomics: Comparative Investigations of Microbes Inhabiting Hydrothermal Vents and the Cold Deep Ocean

submitted by: dougramsey
The deep-ocean accounts for the majority of the water on our planet. While the cold deep-ocean is the dominant nutrient-challenged ecosystem, hydrothermal vents represent oases along tectonically active areas of the seafloor. Hydrothermal vents and the surrounding cold deep-ocean each support unique communities of microbes and viruses that have become highly adapted to local conditions. Through cycles of infection and host cell lysis, bacteriophages (viruses that specifically infect...

Modern Transportation and Infectious Disease – MWV15

submitted by: MicrobeWorld
From your local bus route to international air travel, infectious diseases can spread across the globe in a matter of hours. In this video podcast episode filmed at the Koshland Science Museum in Washington, D.C., Stephen Eubank from the Virginia Bioinformatics Institute of Virginia Tech and Daniel Lucey from Georgetown University discuss the role of transportation in the spread of disease and examine the effectiveness of various measures to curb transmission. Stephen Eubank, Ph.D., is a...
