Research Projects

Utilization of Molecular Modelling for Bio-Chemical Application Scenarios (UMMBAS)

Bio-chemical research is increasingly dependent on accurate computer modelling and analysis. This field of research is by its very nature highly interdisciplinary, as basic physical laws must be implemented algorithmically in order to make relevant contributions in life science applications. The project and the associated initiative UMMBAS bundles the strong cross-disciplinary expertise at the H-BRS in method development, visualisation and the application of computer-based procedures for deciphering material science and biochemical issues.
