Catalog Description: Behavior of protein at interfaces in biological and man-made systems. Structure and dynamics of interfaces are reviewed from the protein adsorption point of view together with modern methods for studies of interfacial protein behavior. Protein adsorption models are presented from a thermodynamic and kinetic perspective. The cell adhesion is considered as a protein-mediated event. Each student is assigned a protein project in which he/she uses the molecular graphics software to predict interfacial protein interactions.
