About the Group

Dr. Phillips’ research is focused primarily upon computational biology and examining the structure and dynamics of proteins. Other ongoing projects in his lab include, acquiring an atomic description of the basis for binding oxygen and other ligands to heme proteins; developing new techniques for observing the dynamics of proteins and nucleic acids using diffuse X-ray scattering analysis and molecular dynamics simulations; structural genomic research, and a joint research venture with the Great Lakes Bioenergy Research Center focused upon biofuel, with accentuation on cellulosic ethanol development. http://phillipslab.org/
