Shoot First, Ask Questions Later: From Molecular Simulations to Protein Function – ICTP Colloquium
To understand how proteins function, we study their dynamics with molecular simulations that cover a wide range of temporal and spatial scales.
Hartmut Michel interviewed by DeutscheWelle
Prof. Hartmut Michel is Nobel Laureate in Chemistry 1988. He talks to us about his research on photosynthesis and the question of why nature is so superior to human ingenuity.
Hartmut Michel, interviewed in 2008
Biofuels such as ethanol, biodiesel and biogas are no solution for the energy problems of the world at all, says Hartmut Michel. Their energy efficiency is far too low, therefore they are absolutely not worth the effort. Instead he favours other renewable energy sources like solar panels and wind power. Michel received the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1988 together with Johann Deisenhofer and Robert Huber for the determination of the three-dimensional structure of a photosynthetic reaction centre.
