The way a protein folds is key for it's function. Discovering a protein's sequence, or primary structure, is fairly straight forward. It's much more difficult to see how a protein of interest folds, and what that fold means for it's function. Bryan will discuss how researchers discover a protein's fold, or 3 dimensional structure, and how researchers (including DIY biologists) can use that information to learn about a protein's function, and even "engineer" new functions.
Parts of this meetup will be hands-on computation. If you want to try out some of these tools, bring a laptop!
