Welcome to the Case group home page!

This page is designed to provide a starting point for information about work in computational chemistry taking place in Dave Case's group. We work on computational aspects of biomolecular NMR, on electrostatic interactions in proteins and nucleic acids, and on electronic structure aspects of metalloenzymes.
