Research Project Title
Prediction of the effects of mutations on the stability and interactions of proteins
Research Project Description
The goal of the project is the study of mutations present in proteins which have a determinant role in pathogenic diseases. In this project the attention is put in particular onthe behaviour of proteins, their stability and interactions. The methods involved in the study are Dynamical Simulations and the calculation of the energies with the nearest neighbor methods developed in statistical physics
