The structure and dynamics of condensed phases of small molecules and of proteins in strongly denatured, partially denatured and native states are examined by combining computer simulation with scattering and absorption experiments. The simulation methods employ polymer theory, molecular dynamics and harmonic analysis and the results used to interpret coherent and incoherent neutron scattering, X-ray diffuse scattering and far-infrared absorption measurements. The results are discussed in the context of current questions in protein folding and function.

Tea and coffee will be served in R3151 Beckman Institute at 2:15pm.
