Thursday, Dec 4 - Birth and Future of
Multi-scale Modeling of Macromolecules by Michel Levitt. The of development multiscale models for complex
chemical systems, begun in 1967 with publications by Warshel and Levitt, was
recently recognized by the 2013 Nobel Committee for Chemistry. The
simplifications used then at the dawn of the age of computational structural
biology were mandated by computers that were almost a billion times less
cost-effective than those we use today. These same multiscale models have
become increasingly popular in applications that range from simulation of
atomic protein motion to protein folding to explanation of enzyme catalysis.
In this talk, I describe the origins computational structural biology and then
go on to show some of the most exciting current and future applications. The talk will be at 6:30 p.m. on the UW campus in Kane Hall, Room 120.
