Bioconformatics and Protein Assemblies

The group is focused on the study of the molecular, structural and cellular basis of protein conformational multiplicity and of its physiopathological impacts. The models used are 1) PrP and its related neurodegenerations, 2) food proteins and their linked type-I food allergies, and 3) the biotechnological use of peptide assemblies.
