Title: Protein Allostery: Evolution and Correlated Motions
Understanding the relationship between protein sequence, structure, dynamics, and function is the ultimate goal of structural biology. For this reason, my lab studies protein allostery - a special property of macromolecules that connects molecular motion and action. In this talk, I'll present two stories. First, I'll talk about how the evolution of allosteric mechanisms and the tools of structural biology can teach us about the relationship between protein sequence and function. In the second story, I'll talk about how one can learn about correlated motions that give rise to allostery.
