Structural Bioinformatics

Welcome to the R. L. Juliano Structural Bioinformatics Core facility at UNC-Chapel Hill. We provide consultations and collaborations on research studies requiring computational structural biology methods. The analyses available through the core are not limited to the study of static structures, but also include molecular dynamics studies for analyzing the contribution of dynamic and collective motions to macromolecular functionality. When experimental structures are not available, molecular modeling studies, whereby the structure of the protein of interest is predicted using known template structures, provide 3D atomic data. All of these analyses contribute to the development of hypotheses to be tested in the laboratory, and give insight into experimental data.
