are a theoretical physical chemistry group in the Department of
Chemistry and Bochemistry at the University of Maryland at College Park. We use
advanced computational methods to study biological
processes at multiple scales, from single protein functional dynamics
and chromatin folding and stability to cell-level processes, such as
stochastic signal transduction and regulation of cell motility.
