My job here

I'm a Short-term Research Worker here interested in Structural & Systems Biology. I'm currently working on the TIM barrel [math]\displaystyle{ (\alpha/\beta)8 }[/math] fold - probabaly the most functionally versatile protein scaffold, adopted by enzymes catalyzing a wide variety of reactions. This, & the lack of any substantial sequence homology between the proteins belonging to this fold family motivate work in the direction of deciphering the structural principles common to these proteins.
