Computer simulations and neutron reflectivity of proteins at interfaces

Chemphyschem. 2002 Dec 16;3(12):993-9. doi: 10.1002/cphc.200290015.


Computer simulations in conjunction with neutron reflectivity is an excellent combination for the study of biological materials at solid-liquid interfaces: Both techniques have excellent resolution levels (Angströms) and they are mature. A stronger interaction between physicists and biologists will allow the use of these two approaches in topics of biological-biomedical interest.
