Groups

The Computational Biology Group of Rainer Böckmann focuses on the structure, dynamics, and function of biological membrane mimics, including e.g. lipid-protein interactions, membrane (nano-)domain formation, and (membrane) protein oligomerization studied both in atomistic and coarse-grained  molecular dynamics simulations (Theoretical & Computational Membrane Biophysics).

The central aim is on elucidating the driving forces for the formation of nano- and microdomains in biomembranes, their composition, dynamics, and role for the sorting of proteins in plasma membranes as well as for their function.
