The interior of living cells is a crowded environment, but most biophysical studies of proteins are conducted in dilute solutions. A fundamental and long-standing question, therefore, is how macromolecular crowding affects reactions such as protein folding, binding and aggregation. Computational studies of proteins in crowded environments have so far focused mainly on the excluded-volume effect (with hard spheres as crowders). The aim of my research is to develop simulation and analysis methods for investigating protein reactions in the presence of interacting macromolecular crowders.
