The aim of this project is to rethink the current standard colorectal cancer (CRC) screening program Computational chemistry is emerging as an extremely powerful addition to the experimental tool box of chemistry and biology. Calculations performed on HPC systems have the potential to both explain and guide experiments. In this project, we use computational methods to study the structure and stability of chemically engineered nucleic acid duplexes as well as to study a key process in the synthesis of the bacterial cell wall. The projects will provide new insight and understanding at an atomic level.
