IPF Mini-Symposium: Emerging methods in the study of biocondensates
“Hydration in confinement – from ions to intrinsically disordered proteins”
Dr. Ellen Adams, Physics of Life Cluster of Excellence, TU Dresden, HZDR
“Biopolymer condensates – membranes organelles that organize cellular biochemistry: The role of electrostatics and hydration”
Prof. James Sterling, Riggs School of Applied Life Sciences, Keck Graduate Institute, CA, USA
“Multiscale models for studying hydration and electrostatics of biomolecular condensates”
Dr. Tyler Harmon, Leibniz-Institut für Polymerforschung Dresden e.V.
This event consists of three 30-minute presentations on novel approaches that aim to elucidate macromolecular biophysics of biocondensates. Inherent to all three approaches is recognition of the driving entropic-enthalpic compensation that involves release and association of both ions and water as biopolymers interact and condense.
