A tutorial on Multi-Path-Simulated-Annealing program package presented by Dr. Xiangan Liu from Baylor College of Medicine (Dr. Wah Chiu's lab) on May 29, 2014 from 10 am to 5 pm tentatively in Research Building 6, Rm. 5.402.

Our mission is to unlock the basic relationships between macromolecular sequence, structure and function, and to understand and treat disease. We:

  • conduct basic research in the fields of structural, physical, and quantitative biology;
  • train investigators in molecular biophysics, and structural and computational biology;
  • and partner with complementary research efforts on campus to foster mutual scientific goals and to build translational research programs.
