Marvin Seibert, Ph. D.
Thursday, 22 April 2010
On april 20th, 2010, Marvin Seibert successfully defended his Ph.D. thesis "Protein Folding and DNA Origami". Opponent for the faculty was Prof. Helmut Grubmueller, from Goettingen, Germany, who was present over a videolink using Skype. The ash cloud due to the volcanic eruption on Iceland thus had a direct impact on the defense. Anyway, congratulations to the new doctor of philosophy.

Proteins in Micelles
Monday, 02 November 2009
In some new papers this year we have expanded our description of proteins in the gas phase, by encapsulating proteins in micelles as well. This was first done for Myoglobin (paper by Yaofeng Wang et al. in Biochemistry ) and now for OmpA (communication by Rosmarie Friemann et al. in J. Amer. Chem. Soc .). Seems like those proteins are indestructible... ALong the same lines, Erik Marklund and others investigated the effects of temperature and solvation on protein dehydration (paper in PCPP featured on the inner cover ).

Melting Ice with a Laser
Saturday, 05 January 2008

A new paper by Carl Caleman and David van der Spoel has just been published (on-line) in Angewandte Chemie . The paper describes siumulatios of  the melting of ice by a laser pulse. The laser deposites energy in the OH bond-stretching, and this excitation is tranferred into melting a few ps after the pulse. The paper is in the VIP (Very Important  Paper) category according to  the two referees  (less than 5% of  papers in Angewandte reach this status), and it will be featured on the cover of the printed edition in February 2008. A movie from the simulations is available here .

Some coverage in the popular press of this paper is here (Swedish):
