Biologia strutturale

Referents: Prof. Andrea Mattevi, Prof. Claudia Binda

The common theme of the research projects in our groups is the investigation of medically relevant proteins and enzymes with interesting chemical properties, such as complex multifunctional systems and proteins performing unusual catalytic functions. The core of the research activity is represented by the study of three-dimensional structures of macromolecules, using crystallography and cryo- electron microscopy. These methods are integrated by other approaches such as biochemistry, biophysics, cell biology and computational chemistry.
