David Shortle Lab

  • The principal research interest of the Shortle Lab is protein folding--how amino acid sequence information encodes three-dimensional structure. We are taking a combined experimental and computational approach to this longstanding puzzle of fundamental biochemistry. In addition, the laboratory is working to predict protein structure from sequence in ways that make the underlying physical chemistry transparent and the relative contributions of different interactions quantifiable.
