Abstract

This summer, on the campus of the University of Illinois, the NCDBN and NCN@UIUC will hold a scientific meeting on "Experimental and Computational Approaches to Understanding Membrane Assemblies and Permeation," a nanoHUB user forum, and a summer school on "Multiscale Theory, Simulation, and Reality at the Nano-Bio Interface" and the nanoHUB. Together, these will create a two-week community for learning, sharing, and doing multiscale simulation with emphasis on applications in biology.

  1. The Functional Protocell concept

    23 Mar 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Eric Jakobsson

    We have invented and created the first prototype of the Functional Protocell.We define the “functional protocell" as a nanoporous solid surrounded by a membrane. The cavities in the solid can be filled with any desired electrolyte up to the limit of solubility. The surrounding membrane can...

  2. Using Mass Spectrometry to Understand Membrane Organization

    28 Mar 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Mary Kraft

    Our ability to engineer tissues and biomimetic devices hinges upon an understanding of the structure-function relationship in healthy and diseased cells. Our laboratory utilizes materials characterization, quantitative engineering principles, cell biology and chemistry to elucidate the influence...

  3. Modeling (Semi) Unstructured Proteins

    26 Mar 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Michael Colvin

    The past century has seen tremendous progress in determining the biochemical and biophysical processes that constitute life. One exciting consequence of this understanding is the possibility of developing mathematical models of biological function that are accurate and even predictive. My...

  4. Controlling Membrane Organization: Effects of pH, Ions, and composition

    23 Mar 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Jennifer Hovis

    Our main research interests are in determining, at the molecular level, how cell membranes are organized and how that organization relates to function. The primary molecular building blocks of cell membranes are lipids, amphipathic molecules that assemble into two opposed leaflets forming a...

  5. Molecular modeling of lipid bilayer edge and hybrid-MCMD method: Implementation and application

    29 Apr 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Yong Jiang

    Introduction to mixed lipid systems, Hybrid Monte Carlo and MD (atomistic) algorithm for mixed lipid systems

  6. Spectroscopy and Modeling to Infer Channel Structure and Function

    23 Mar 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Vishwanath Jogini

    We are particularly interested in issues about ion permeation, ion selectivity, gating, and channel inhibitors. We are currently working on the KcsA channel, the OmpF porin, and the gramicidin A> channel. We are also spending our efforts in the development of new computational approaches for...

  7. Ion Selectivity in Synthetic and Natural Channels

    31 Mar 2008 | Online Presentations | Contributor(s): Susan Rempe

    Transport across membranes and nanopores can be characterized by static equilibrium properties as well as by nonequilibrium dynamic properties. For example, equilibrium selectivity properties of a nanopore can be characterized by the difference in interaction free energy for transferring one ion...
