The story of chain-folding: From polymers to proteins

Place:ROOM 9004, Hefei National Laboratory Building


  The lecture will start with the discovery history of molecular chain-folding. The origin and the development of chain-folding upon polymer crystallization were attributed to the intramolecular crystal nucleation model and the growth kinetic equation of lamellar crystals. The polymer chain-folding in crystallization can serve as the prototype model to understand the folding, unfolding and misfolding of proteins. (Physics Reports 2018, 747, 1-50)
