This seminar is organized by Capsid Team and will be held by Antonio Mucherino. It will take place on December 8th at 10:30 am, in room B013.
Distance Geometry (DG) is an interdisciplinary research area where pure mathematics, computer science and several other disciplines come together, each by playing an important role, either proposing new applications, or providing support to problems arising in the DG context. In this seminar, I’ll mainly be focusing on the application arising in structural biology which asks whether the three-dimensional structure of proteins can be determined by exploiting information that is basically encoded in terms of geometrical constraints. After a short historical review about my long collaboration with Therese Malliavin and other colleagues, I’ll make a point on the state-of-the-art in the field and briefly describe our current research directions and ongoing projects.
