Computational Chemistry in Biology (CCB) encompasses research groups that use computer software to solve problems and generate hypotheses in biology. Computer studies from members in this group can be completely theoretical or can be driven using experimental data. Research may involve calculating the quantum mechanical states of an intermediate to better understand an enzymatic reaction. A member of this group may use molecular dynamics (MD) simulations to investigate biological motion or energy minimization (EM) to determine the lowest energy state of a biomolecule. Faculty in this group may use molecular docking techniques for virtual drug screening or use protein homology modeling to predict a protein structure.
