Predicting Crystal Nucleation: A New Twist to an Old Story
If you have a question about this talk, please contact Raymond E. Goldstein.
Protein solutions exhibit very interesting phase behaviour that is qualitatively different from that of simple atomic or molecular substances. This phase behaviour has important consequence for the kinetics of protein crystal nucleation. I will discuss simulations of homogeneous protein crystallisation and report on very recent results concerning seeded nucleation. Our simulations reveal a surprising mechanism by which micro-porous materials may promote protein-crystal nucleation.
