Structural Biology

Learn more about this group by contacting Dr. Jarrod Mousa (jarrod.mousa@uga.edu).

Structural Biology is interdisciplinary research areas that routinely integrate advanced computing techniques (dynamics, molecular modeling, simulations) and specialized physical methods (crystallography, nuclear magnetic resonance, spectroscopy) to solve exciting questions in biological systems. The disciplines often work at the molecular level and utilize fundamental principles derived from mathematics, chemistry, and physics.
