Atoms to X-rays: How Do Proteins Fold? Theory Meets Experiments

submitted by: video_collector
The machinery of life depends on proteins--large organic molecules composed of tens, hundreds or even thousands of amino acids bound together and folded into specifically shaped structures. How they fold into these three-dimensional structures is known as the second genetic code and is one of great challenges in science today. Join UCSD biophysicist Jose Onuchic, as he explores how physics, chemistry, biology and mathematics are all being applied to crack the protein folding mystery. Series:...
