Principal Investigator

Agnes Noy

I have a multi-disciplinary trajectory in molecular modelling within the field of biological physics. My research interests are centred in developing novel computational tools to understand and predict how global mechanical properties of complex macromolecules such as DNA and RNA are built on the basis of their atomic fluctuations, with a particular emphasis in DNA flexibility, supercoiling and 3D architecture of genomes.
