Designing membrane-reshaping nanostructures through artificial evolution

READ THE PREPRINT

Developed a genetic algorithm, coupled with a molecular dynamics model for desiging nanoparticles optimised for cell entry. Identified rules which govern successful membrane crossing, and the dynamics associated with them.

Human Immunomodulation in Space

Development of novel experiments for investigation into immune recovery in space.

Modelling of transmission of sunlight in extraterrestrial environments.

How can we maintain healthy immune response in future Martian settlements?

Are Rainforests Random?

Network analysis of the BCI rainforest plot to detect communities.

Analysis of the traits of subcommunities.

Are traits randomly distributed or is there some pattern?

Using GAs to Design Nanoparticles

Developed a genetic algorithm to maximise cell membrane deformation by nanoparticles in simulations.

Are there fundamental similarities between good designs? Do recognisable functional features appear?
