Theory Biomolecular Dynamics

Welcome to the Biomolecular Dynamics Theory group at the MBI (Theory Department T4).

Our scientific aim is the development of novel simulation algorithms for state-of-the-art time resolved vibrational and optical spectroscopic techniques. Both techniques exploit different windows of observation to provide a real time view of ultrafast reaction dynamics. The developed simulation protocols will help to investigate complex biomolecular dynamics and develop a microscopic view of fundamental reaction mechanisms.
