Laboratory for computational molecular design
RIKEN Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research
(Team Leader: Makoto Taiji)
The Center for Biosystems Dynamics Research (BDR) views the functions of molecules, cells, and organs that support all life stages of organisms as a dynamic system, and aims to elucidate developmental, growth and aging phenomena as well as apply their findings to develop regenerative medicine and diagnostics, thereby contributing to the extension of healthy life expectancies.
The Laboratory for computational molecular design is recruiting research/technical employees to carry out a new theme. The research overview of the laboratory is shown below.
In our laboratory/team, we aim to simulate biomolecular interactions and to design effective molecular regulators using large-scale computer simulations. To connect molecular behavior with molecular structure and to predict molecular functions, however, require large scale, atomic level molecular simulations. For the goal, we develop special-purpose high-performance computers for molecular simulations, which enable unprecedented long-term MD simulations. Through collaboration with groups inside and outside BDR, we are designing novel compounds for various target biomolecules by utilizing our computational techniques.
