Projects: I am using AWSEM to study protein-protein interactions, protein folding, misfolding and aggregation. My current interests focus on Abeta protein and its possible interactions with APOE, as well as polyQ that is involved in Huntington's disease. I am also applying frustratometer to large assemblies such as Adeno-associated virus capsid (AAV).
