Undergraduate physics major and group member Alex Covington wrote an article on our recent outreach efforts using VMD Lite at Pope High School in Marietta, GA. You can find it here.
The group just returned from another great BPS meeting, this year in Baltimore, MD. Besides our academic father/grandfather Klaus Schulten giving the National Lecture, Karl and Curtis each gave two excellent presentations on BamA and BtuB respectively. JC, Anna, and Conner all presented posters as well. Good job everyone!
“The photosynthesis society” is not a new scientific organization, but rather a description of the “society” of molecules that come together to carry out a complex task such as photosynthesis. Klaus Schulten, Professor of Physics at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign, recently came to Georgia Tech to explain the inner workings of this society from the atomic level on up.
