The Das group strives to predict how sequence codes for structure in proteins, nucleic acids, and heteropolymers whose folds have yet to be explored. We are creating new computational and chemical tools to tackle the de novo modeling of protein and RNA puzzles, the biophysics of functional and random RNAs, and the design of new RNA shapes and switches.

We welcome students with physics, math, or computer science backgrounds who are deeply interested in fundamental questions in biomolecule 3D structure and behavior.
