About the Group

Dr. Ourmazd’s effort with the BioXFEL Center is directed at determining the structure, conformations, and dynamics of biological entities such as viruses and proteins, and molecular machines, such as the ribosome. Ourmazd develops advanced algorithms to reconstruct the three-dimensional structure of non-stationary objects from random, ultra-low-signal sightings of unknown orientation. Applications range from single biomolecules and viruses to non-stationary macroscopic objects such as breathing lungs and beating hearts. More generally, his techniques offer novel search algorithms for furtive signals in a sea of noise. http://people.uwm.edu/ourmazd/
