Our mini review on peptide-based virus mimetics entitled Exploiting Peptide Self-Assembly for the Development of Minimalistic Viral Mimetics was published in Frontiers in Chemistry (IF 5.221) as part of the International Women of Supramolecular Chemistry special issue.
Great work by young scientists Patrizia Janković and Iva Šantek.
Patrizia presented a poster entitled Minimalistic peptide-based virus mimeics at the Systems Chemistry 21 Virtual Symposium. We enjoyed valuable discussions at the gathertown platform, making this conference feel like a real (on-site) one.
Goran presented his work entitled Artificial intelligence based design of short peptides at DSC Croatia 2021, in the context of the impact of AI on business and society. A special thanks to the organizers for the invitation.
Marko, Erik, Patrizia and Sabino participated at this year’s Pint of Science Croatia 2021. Check out their videos by clicking on their names in the post.
The Mechanism and Catalytic Site Atlas (M-CSA) offers summer internships to biochemists that are willing to curate their database with exciting new mechanisms of how individual enzymes work and which of their numerous amino acid residues directly acts in the chemistry of its catalytic function.
Our master project student Marko Babić has been offered a 3 month intership at the European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) where he will be learning about newly discovered enzymatic mechanisms to insert into an ever-growing database. The database is aimed to help researchers quickly find a trove of information on the active sites of enzymes and their mechanisms.
We exchanged our ideas on enyzmes, catalytic triads and ways of studying them, with colleagues from EMBL-EBI (The European Bioinformatics Institute), Dr. Antonio Ribeiro and Ioannis Riziotis. Marko Babić presented his master thesis progress and opened up the floor for a fruitfull discussion.
Sabino just received a shipment of falcon tubes and he is ready to resume his synthesis 🙂 Will he use them all?
Nothing better than an afternoon scientific discussion in great company 🙂
