Chris Bystroff (Carleton '83) has a joint appointment in computer science and biology at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, and does research in computational biology. He will be presenting a talk titled "Fold a protein, save the world" on Monday, May 7, at 3:30 in Olin 141. Chris's goal will be to describe that state of the art in solving the protein folding problem. To that end, he will introduce the related problem of computational protein design and show some applications towards biosensors, bioremediation, and enzyme design for alternative energy sources. All computer science students are welcome!
