Models of Protein Biomaterials

What is being modeled?
Silk and Silk-elastin-like proteins (SELPs)
Description & purpose of resource

Silk project;
-Replica exchange molecular dynamics is used to develop a structure for the silk chimeras.
-MD is also used to explain the change in integrin folding associated with its activation due to interactions with inorganic surfaces

Silk elastin project:
- Replica exchange molecular dynamics to guide design of elastin domains in SELPs (silk elastin like proteins)
